BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – Amateur video footage, translated by pro-government social media sources, has appeared showing an unnamed general of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) giving a speech before the troops and officers under his command on the upcoming battle for Deir Ezzor.

The unnamed general is said to belong to a special forces formation, although which unit it is has yet to be identified.

In the footage, the general reminds his men that they are the best-equipped in the SAA, ensures them that there should be no shortage of weapons, ammunition or food when the final offensive on Deir Ezzor is launched and asks them not to be afraid of ISIS, referring to its fighters as “herders”, “trash” and “dogs.”

In addition to not knowing the name of the general or the special forces formation which he is addressing, no information also exists regarding the exact location where the speech took place.

In any case, the Syrian general hints at massive preparations for the upcoming push by pro-government forces to lift the siege on the city of Deir Ezzor.
