Breaking: Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces swoop up another town in Idlib amid renewed assault
Amid renewed offensive operations in the southeastern countryside of Idlib province, elite forces of the Syrian Arab Army have captured another town from jihadist-led militias.
According to emerging reports from military-affiliated sources, units of the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division liberated the town of Al-Hawa from jihadist-led armed groups in southeast Idlib province.
This most recent advance represents a capitalization on another push made earlier in the day (Tuesday) that saw the Tiger Forces wrest control of the town of Ard az-Zurzur from rebel militias.
The renewed assault by the Syrian Arab Army in southeast Idlib province, which is now developing momentum to the northeast of the government-held crossroad town of Khuwayn (liberated from militant factions two days ago), appears to be taking a very different direction to what was initial thought to be an advance on the jihadist stronghold of Khan Sheikhoun, located to the west.
