BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – A large convoy of 5th Legion troops were filmed heading towards the Idlib province after serving several weeks in southern Syria.
According to military reports, the Syrian Arab Army’s entire 5th Legion has received orders to redeploy from the southern provinces of Al-Sweida and Dara’a to the Hama-Idlib axis in the northwestern region of the country.
The massive 5th Legion convoy consisted of a large number of soldiers, armored vehicles, and their heavy weaponry that was previously used against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) and jihadist rebels.
While their missions remains unclear, they are most likely being sent to this front to aid in the upcoming Tiger Forces offensive that is set to take place in the southeastern countryside of Idlib.
Below is the new video footage of the 5th Legion leaving southern Syria and heading towards the Hama-Idlib axis:
