BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to launch their next major assault in northwestern Syria after scoring a small advance earlier this month.

According to a field source, thousands of soldiers have been deployed to the northwestern countryside of the Hama in the last two weeks, including units from the 9th Division’s Shock Troops and 14th Special Forces Division.

The source said the Syrian Army will not only attempt to retake the areas they lost in northwestern Hama, but also, push east of Kafr Naboudeh in a bid to secure the aforementioned town.

The Syrian Army previously lost the hilltop of Tal Malah and the nearby town of Jibeen after the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a surprise offensive at this axis.

As a result of these losses, the main road between the Christian towns of Mhardeh and Sqaylabiyeh were cutoff.

Retaking these two areas in northwestern Hama is currently a high priority for the Syrian Army’s High Command as both Mhardeh and Sqaylabiyeh remain susceptible to attacks by the jihadist rebels.

As usual, when SAA fight alone without Russia air support or Hezbolah-Iran help is really deceptive

will they be “pushing east” to Tal Sakhar first, or just going past it to Hobeit and beyond to Khan Sheikhoun? They haven’t done so good attacking hills in the current campaign.

And why are mainstream media paying so little attention to this on which so much depends? The public’s grasp is kept completely superficial, no facts, no understanding of the course of the battle. Maybe they’ll read about it in history class 20 years from now.
