BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The ISIS Hunters detachment, an elite formation within the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 5th Assault Corps, is preparing an operation to encircle ISIS forces in the region of eastern Hama.

According to sources, the ISIS Hunters are in the final stages of preparation for an offensive action to strike directly north of the al-Sha’er gas complex in the direction of the Ethriyah to Resafa highway. If successful, the operation will serve to totally isolate the large ISIS bastion in eastern Hama from the rest of land the terrorist group occupies in Syria.

Nonetheless, even at face value the task appears daunting, since the ISIS Hunters will have to attack through seventy kilometers of mostly mountainous terrain to reach their objective.

With this being said, it might be possible that the formation will be assisted by some other pro-government outfit attacking from the north.

The ISIS Hunters have so far played a crucial role in reclaiming and protecting Syria’s gas and oil infrastructures in eastern Homs. Although not publicized, the formation has – over the last several months – absorbed the brunt of some harsh ISIS counter-attacks in central Homs which were aimed at seizing the Faraqlas junction and the T-4 Airbase from pro-government forces.
