The map below depicts the 4 stages of the terrorists’ advances against the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces in the northern part of Hama province. The so-called ‘joint opposition forces’ in the area are led by the Jund al Aqsa terrorist group.
I am not sure about my following statement so do correct me if I am in error. As I recall did not the militants who ‘surrendered’ in the Damascus countryside relocate to Hama province? At the time I did question the wisdom of allowing such a thing. The above map might indicate that this judgment was not completely ill-founded.
Only some of them, not a huge number.
I doubt there’s many of them taking part in this push.
There is a report on the ANM website that gives more information about this. The site is not easy to use and you may not know it. Reports don’t stay up for long.
