BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is making their final preparations for their upcoming offensive to retake the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airport in the eastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

Led by several brigades from the 4th Division and Republican Guard, the Syrian Army has been building up their forces in northeastern Hama and southern Aleppo for what is expected to be the largest offensive in 2018.

Also joining the 4th Division and Republican Guard are the following units:

  • Tiger Forces
  • Syrian Marines
  • Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP)
  • National Defense Forces (NDF)
  • Ba’ath Battalion
  • 11th Tank Division
  • Qalamoun Shield Forces

The preliminary phase of this offensive has already began, as the Syrian Army attempts to clear the northeastern countryside of Hama and southern Aleppo.
