Syrian military will enter southern Idlib after Hama offensive – source
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies will enter the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate after they complete their Hama offensive, a military source told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.
According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army will build a buffer-zone around the northern Hama axis in order to prevent any future attacks on the provincial capital and strategic town of Mhardeh.
The military source continued that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have no plans as of now to push to the Idlib Governorate’s provincial capital nor do they plan on advancing past the historical city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.
Unlike their previous offensive in southern Syria, the government forces will leave a large terrorist-held pocket .
