BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces branch has been given orders to redeploy from southwest Syria to the Al-Ghaab Plain.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Tiger Forces will lead the Syrian Arab Army’s offensive to retake the Jisr Al-Shughour District in southwest Idlib.

This offensive has been in the works for several months, but was put on hold after the Astana Peace Talks.

At the Astana Peace Talks earlier this year, Turkey and Russia agreed to setup observation posts to halt the fighting and allow safe passage for civilians.

However, the Turkish observation posts have done little to end the fighting, which is one of the reasons why the Syrian Arab Army and Russian military have shifted their attention to the Jisr Al-Shughour front.

Both the Al-Ghaab Plain and Jisr Al-Shughour have a large jihadist presence, making these areas a top priority for the Syrian Army’s High Command.

Since Hamas openly backs al-Nusra and ISIS/Sinai, once all the Syrian SHTF will be over, I think that Netanyahu should hire Tiger-Forces to free Gaza from Hamas.
