On August 24, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 4th Armoured Division deployed more units along with dozens of battle tanks and rocket launchers in the northern Lattakia countryside as a part of the ongoing preparations for an upcoming large-scale military operation against the remaining militants in northern Syria.

Last week, the 4th Armoured Division redeployed most of its infantry units from southern Syria to the northern Lattakia countryside. Back then, a military source told SouthFront that heavy weapons will be transferred there during the last week of August.

Northern Lattakia is a stronghold of the al-Qaeda affiliated Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) and Chechen-led Ajnad al-Kavkaz. According to the Ministry of Defense of Russia, the armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which attacked Hmeimim airbase, were launched from there.

According to a source in the 4th Armoured Division, thee military operation in northern Syria may begin after the end of Eid al-Adha holiday. However, political developments, such as a Russia-Turkish agreement, may delay the operation.

    Next will be peace with Netanyao sending spendable replacemenets from the Westbank making an everlasting peace.

  • Jens Holm

    Not a single word about peace here at this site. All is about dirty honor as best and total twisted respect.

    Well, I do respect the dead. iIalway has. Gain my respect and kill, kill, kill and be dead.

    There will be no peace before all are dead.
