BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies are preparing to launch a new operation in the eastern part of the country, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this morning.

According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion and Republican Guard are heading towards the Hamimah region and T-3 Pumping Station to launch a new military against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).

The source added that the operation will be backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Hezbollah, Liwaa Al-Fatemiyoun, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

This move by the Syrian military comes just hours after they managed to eliminate the Islamic State’s last pocket and sleeper cells around the northeastern region of the Tanf Green Zone.

On Sunday, the Syrian Army launched a big operation to clear the Islamic State’s pocket around the T-2 Pumping Station; this offensive would result in the complete liberation of this region from the terrorist forces.

The Syrian military is now working to clear the T-3 Pumping Station and Hamimah region because this area is located just east of the historical city of Palmyra (Tadmur), which was previously under the Islamic State’s control.

For ISIS, they have controlled this vast desert region for several years; if lost, they will be confined to a small part of the Badiya Al-Sham.

The US Coalition of Terrorism will not be happy about their cadres from Al Tanf being wasted 🙂
