The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) deployed additional troops and equipment from the 7th Division on the frontlines in the northern Hama countryside on May 26.
A source in the 7th Division told SouthFront that these reinforcements could participate in future military operations against Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the region. However, he declined to provide additional information.
A Facebook page affiliated with the 7th Division released several photos showing T-55 battle tanks, BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), Shilka anti-aircraft vehicles and 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled howitzers.
The deployment of these troops indicate that the army could be planning to develop its military operation in northern Hama. The key towns of al-Lataminah, Murak, Kafr Zita are all possible targets.
