BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) High Command announced on Thursday that their forces will be launching an offensive to retake the Idlib Governorate.

According to the statement released by the military command, General Mohammad Khaddour will be leading the operation to retake the Abu Dhuhour Airport in eastern Idlib.

In addition to overseeing the Idlib campaign, General Khaddour will also lead the operations to recapture the town of Abu Dali in northern Hama.

General Khaddour is considered one of the most experienced officers in the Syrian Army; he is also the commander of the elite 3rd Legion.

A military source told Al-Masdar News on Thursday night that this operation will not likely begin for a few weeks, as they still need to secure their main supply route to the Aleppo Governorate.

I wouldn’t have let al Qaida, ISIS, the Turks & FSA know about this ahead of time. Those groups, and the SDF along the way, are all having a go at each other. So until one of those appears to come out on top let them kill each other. Just before the dominant one is about to finish off the other remaining party then the SAA and allies should go in to finish both off. The Turks are in Syria and NATO will not come to her aid especially since they are attacking the Americans’ pet, the Kurds and SDF.

Not a fan of this strategy as well. But maybe they hope to exhaust the enemy being on high alert for weeks without any offensive. And then – as amn often tells – SAA can catch them off guard to accelerate the first operations.

I would sustain in announcing operation in advance. Is definitely bad move.
