BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – The Syrian military has begun amassing troops in northern Latakia for their upcoming offensives in the Al-Ghaab Plain and Kurdish Mountains, a military source told Al-Masdar News tonight.

According to the military source, the Syrian military has begun moving their forces from southern Syria to the Latakia Governorate, following their subsequent victory in the Daraa and Al-Quneitra provinces.

The source added that several units from the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) have already begun moving north, with another large batch of soldiers from the 4th Armored Division and Republican Guard to follow.

The 4th Division and Republican Guard will be concentrated along the Jabal Turkmen and Jabal Al-Akrad axes in northern Latakia; this front is heavily guarded by jihadist rebels from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and other foreign combatants

Meanwhile, the Syrian military’s elite Tiger Forces branch is expected to make their way north to the Al-Ghaab Plain axis once their battle against the Islamic State (ISIS) is completed in southern Syria.

ISIS has only a few more towns under their control in the Daraa Governorate and they should be defeated in the coming days.

Once the Tiger Forces and the 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces) of the 4th Division move north, the long-awaited battle for northwest Syria is expected to commence.

This battle will focus on sealing the Latakia-Turkey border and retaking the strategic Jisr Al-Shughour District, which is primarily controlled by jihadist rebels.

If there is any “god” around in Syria, he’d deserve Syrians to shoot a Toshka straight into his a$$ for the SHTF he did to the country while Syrians would chant “death to the traitor false-god”… Stop understating the way Syrians fought the sectarian motherfückers. Once ISIS, Nusra and other Sunni roaches will be gone, it will also be time to take care of other sectarian slime, you know, Soleimani and his gang who are posing like saviours of Syria while they backstabbed the country with the monster they created, namely ISIS. Nevertheless, Soleimani poses as a hero but IRGC… Read more »

Shut up, Daeshbag, you hasbara scum. This has nothing to do with God and what God ”did to the country”. It has everything to do with you GODLESS Zionist/Wahhabi cunts who imposed this ”conflict” on the Syrian people so that you can turn a secular Muslim country into a Wahhabi-Zionist shithole in order to establish the ”Greater Israhell”. Funny how your name says ”Daeshbags Sux” and yet you have the same ideology as Da’esh (the same agenda, same politics, same enemies, same friends, same rethoric, same sectarian language). Really, you ZioNazi? Da’esh sucks, and yet you finance and support them… Read more »

Ok. it looks like Syria-Russia will focous on Idlib area after Daraa. I hope Russia aerospace force keep looking Al-Tanaf area and be capable of controlling this area for sudden terrorists attack. It would be too bad that these terrorists retake Palmira and T2 station.
