BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces have allegedly sent reinforcements to the Hama countryside this past week, the Sputnik News Agency reported.

Citing a field correspondent in northern Hama, the Sputnik report said that the new reinforcements were likely an indication that the Syrian Army was preparing to launch a new attack in the governorate.

The Sputnik correspondent said the Syrian Arab Army will likely strike the jihadist defenses in the coming hours, as they attempt to isolate the Idlib Governorate.

In the past three days, many villages and towns in northern and northwestern Hama have witnessed an increase in violence, despite repeated attempts by Turkey and Russia to ease tensions in this northwestern governorate.

A source from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar last week that the military was preparing to launch a new ground assault in the Kafr Naboudeh countryside.

The source said the Syrian military is looking to secure the town, while also expelling the jihadist rebels from these territories in northwestern Syria.

To acomplish that goal the Syrian Army Forces have to attack the jihadist at two fronts up front and at the rear front and making them to spread over the battlefield this may prevent for more Syrian Army casualties

This tells us that they did not send enough troops to begin with. They should have sent the entire Tiger Force and the entire 4th division at the beginning of the offensive. In addition, the idiotic one sided “cease fires” have prevented the Syrian army from sustaining any momentum. Rather than trying to take Tal Sakhar directly, why not take everything around it, cut it off and let it wither in the vine? In any case they should carpet bomb it. Massive air assaults 24/7 are what is needed. This stop and go bullshit getting a lot of Syrian soldiers… Read more »
