HAMA, SYRIA (12:00 P.M.) – Damascus has given the Syrian Armed Forces in northern Hama the green light to launch a massive counter-offensive against the jihadist rebels of Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise) after several weeks of being on the defensive.

The offensive will include several units of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces,” who have just been redeployed from the Al-Castillo Highway in northern Aleppo after a long deployment.

According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Tiger Forces will lead the offensive, alongside the 47th Regiment of the 11th Tank Division, 555th Regiment of the 4th Mechanized Division, National Defense Forces (NDF), Syrian Air Force Intelligence Unit 333, and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP).

Similar to their 2014 counter-offensive, the primary objective of this attack will be to recover all the villages lost to the jihadist rebels, along with the key town of Morek, which was captured by Jund Al-Aqsa earlier this year.

The date of this offensive was not revealed to Al-Masdar News.
