BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – Syrian Defense Minister General ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Ayoub made a scheduled visit to the front-lines in Hama this week to meet with the troops in the province.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency, General Ayoub traveled to the Hama province under the instructions of President Bashar al-Assad.

“General Ayoub relayed to the soldiers President al-Assad’s appreciation for their heroic actions and provided field commanders with directives for carrying out their tasks so that 2019 will be the year of complete victory over terrorism,” the SANA report said.

“The field commanders briefed Gen. Ayoub on the nature of their tasks and the combat operations against terrorists who continuously breach the Sochi agreement,” the report added.

General Ayoub often visits the front-lines of areas that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to attack (e.g. Daraa 2018).
