BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces branch is headed towards the northern countryside of Hama, not the Al-Ghaab Plain as previously reported.

According to the 4th Division near Mhardeh, the Tiger Forces will begin their operations in northern Hama, where they will be tasked with sealing off the Hama-Idlib axis for the first time since the start of the armed conflict.

In particular, the Tiger Forces will attempt to capture the Jaysh Al-Izza strongholds of Al-Lataminah and Kafr Zita; these two towns are located at the provincial border of Hama and Idlib.

More importantly, Kafr Zita and Al-Lataminah are located along the strategic Damascus-Aleppo Highway (M-5 Highway), which makes their capture all the more important for the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command.

The Syrian Army will also push their way to the Al-Ghaab Plain in order to retake the historical town of Qal’at Al-Madiq.

From Qal’at Al-Madiq, the Syrian Army will make their way north towards the Jisr Al-Shughour District for the first time since they withdrew from the area in May of 2015.
