Syrian Army Sends More Troops to Hama, Lattakia Provinces for Idlib Offensive

 

The Syrian Army dispatched more forces and military equipment to the Northwestern part of the country on Sunday, preparing for a major operation in the region.

The army sends a convoy, including thirty military vehicles, tanks and other equipment to Northern Hama.

The newly-arrived army forces have deployed to Jabal al-Turkmen and Salman regions in Northern Lattakia, Abu Dali and Abu Omar regions in Hama and Abu al-Dhohour base in Eastern Idlib.

A military convoy has also been forwarded to Jourin in al-Ghaab Plain in Western Idlib.

The army has also opened several humanitarian safe corridors to evacuate civilians as the zero hour is arriving for the government forces’ operation.

In the meantime, the army’s artillery and missile units pounded terrorists’ positions and movements in the villages and towns of al-Zakat, Hasraya, Latmin, al-Masasana and Ma’arkabah, inflicting major losses on the militants.

On Saturday, terrorist groups, deployed in Northwestern Syria, went on alert as the government forces reinvigorated their combat capabilities for an imminent large-scale operation in Idlib, Lattakia, Hama and Aleppo provinces.

The National Liberation Front kept fighters on alert in Northwestern Syria, urging allied militants to help them counter the Damascus forces’ major operation in the region.

In the meantime, the army sent hundreds of forces and a large volume of military hardware, including tanks, personnel carrier and armored vehicles, to mountains in Northeastern Lattakia, Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.

A military source, meantime, said that the army has reinvigorated its positions in Hama, al-Ghaab plain and Jabal al-Turkmen after dispatching several convoys to the region via the road connecting al-Saqilibiyeh to Mahrada.

The source further said that the army is planning to kick off simultaneous operations in different flanks in Lattakia and Western Hama.
