BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recently sent two divisions to the Hama and Aleppo governorates as reports of a new offensive continue to swirl around northwestern Syria.
According to a new report from the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army deployed the 5th Corps and 9th Division to northwestern Syria.
The report said that the 5th Corps and 9th Division were specifically sent to the southwestern part of Aleppo and northern countryside of Hama.
These new reinforcements come just days before the Syrian government and opposition meet in the capital of Kazakhstan to discuss a peace settlement.
Furthermore, the Russian, Turkish, and Iranian defense ministers are set to meet in the port city of Sochi this week in order to discuss the current situation inside the Idlib Governorate.
Should all three agree to launch an offensive to rid Idlib of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen, the Syrian Army reinforcements will come in handy during this battle.
