BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is making their final preparations for what is expected to be their largest offensive of 2018.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces have arrived in the eastern part of Damascus after making the long journey from the southeastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

The Tiger Forces joined the Syrian Army’s elite 4th Division, which has already deployed to the East Ghouta’s Al-Nashabiyah and Harasta fronts.

While the Syrian Army’s Central Command has yet to announce which front the Tiger Forces will deploy to, it is expected that they will lead the charge to clear the Harasta suburb.

In particular, the Tiger Forces will likely deploy to the vehicle management base, where they will help reopen supply lines to the installation and push back the jihadist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

This battle for east Damascus is expected to commence in the coming days, as the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) concludes their aerial campaign over the East Ghouta region.

Any other less fortified area near Harasta is just as likely and will alleviate the pressure just the same.

Sans aucun USA et leurs comparses vont nous sortir la sempiternelle chanson de l’emploi des “armes chimiques” pour stopper cet assaut ou du moins le freiner

Where? Everywhere, eradicate all the pest once and for all. Ghouta, Yarmouk, Dumayr. However, the tigers won’t be effective in dens urban warfare, so they’d better roll up the whole vermin concentration from the east.
