Field sources in Northern Syria reported on Tuesday that the Syrian army has sent a large number of fresh forces and tens of military vehicles and equipment from Damascus to the battle fronts in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.
They added that hundreds of army forces have also been sent to Karnaz in Northern Hama, noting that the Syrian army wants to retake control of the strategic Tal Malah and Jabin regions.
Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported that the convoys have been sent to Northern Syria in line with plans to prepare the army for extensive military operations in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib and cleanse the demilitarized zone from militants who use the region for repeated offensives against the military positions and safe towns and villages in Northern Syria.
The Syrian army troops targeted Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorist groups’ positions in Murak, Kafar Zita, al-Latamineh, al-Arbaeen, al-Jabin and al-Qastoun in Northern Hama and Southwestern Hama and Kafar Sajnej, Sheikh Mostafa, Arinabeh, Mara’anad and Badama in Southern Idlib with heavy artillery and missile fire in response to the militants’ continued attacks, inflicting heavy damages and tolls on them.

In a relevant development last Tuesday, the Syrian army dispatched massive military convoys to Northern Hama and Southern Idlib as heavy fighting between the two sides inflicted tens of casualties on the terrorists.

Three military convoys comprising tens of military vehicles carrying military equipment and a large number of fresh troops arrived in Northern Syria from Damascus province.
