BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has begun mobilizing their forces in the western countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, as they prepare to battle the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group near the Homs Governorate border.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion and several units from Hezbollah’s Syrian faction have been moved to the Badiya front, where they are preparing to storm the large Islamic State pocket.

ISIS has maintained a large presence in the Badiya pocket of western Deir Ezzor since they were officially expelled from the strategic border-city of Albukamal, which is located directly west of Iraq’s Al-Anbar province.

With nowhere to retreat, the Islamic State is expected to heavily resist this new Syrian Army offensive in the Badiya region.

The Syrian Army and their allies will rely on close air support from the Russians and Iranians, who also have a large presence in this part of the country.

This new offensive is expected to begin in the next three weeks, as the Syrian Army moves more reinforcements to this front for the upcoming battle.

Hope this will reduce the stretching of Syrian forces. And drive is to Jordan or the Kurdish sector. Where it will find less experienced or less strong adversaries.
