BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s elite armored division is leaving southern Syria for the Hama Governorate this week, a new military report said on Tuesday.
According to the military report, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Armored Division has received orders to leave the Al-Safa region for the Hama province in order to participate in the next offensive.

With the 4th Division heading to Hama, it appears that the Syrian Arab Army’s next target will be the jihadist-held areas along the Idlib axis.
However, this new deployment could be short-lived if an agreement is made by the parties at the upcoming Astana Peace Conference.
Turkey is attempting to secure an agreement at this conference that would prevent the Syrian Army from entering any part of jihadist-held Idlib and Hama.
Both Russia and Syria have been fed up with the jihadist forces in the Idlib buffer zone, as they continue to launch attacks against the government forces from this demilitarized area.
