BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces are preparing for their next battle as they wrap-up their operations against the so-called Islamic State (IS) in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Tiger Forces will most likely be deployed to the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate, where they will lead the charge into the Idlib Governorate.

With several of their units already deployed in the Hama Governorate, it would make most sense for the division’s next major operation to be in this region.

Furthermore, following the recent advances by the 3rd and 5th legions in southern Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army now finds themselves within 20 km of the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.

The Abu Dhuhour Military Airport is Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s main installation in the eastern countryside of Idlib.

Some other options for the Tiger Forces are the western and southern countrysides of the Aleppo Governorate; however, the former is not likely due to the large presence of Turkish Army troops in the Darat Izza area.
