Syrian Military Deploys Former FSA Members From Southern Damascus In Northern Hama (Video)

Donate

Over the last few days, hundreds of former fighters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) were redeployed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) from southern Damascus to the northern Hama countryside as a part of the ongoing perpetrations for a military operation against militants in the province of Idlib, the Syrian news outlet Enab Baladi reported on August 27.

A source familiar with the situation told the pro-opposition news outlet that more former FSA fighters from the region of Eastern Ghouta will be redeployed to northern Hama in the upcoming days. According to the source, these fighters have expressed their will to fight Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in northern Syria.

During the last two weeks, hundreds of former FSA fighters were redeployed from  northern Homs and southern Syria to positions around the northern governorate of Idlib. Most of these fighters used to be backed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The participation of these fighters will likely ease the SAA’s upcoming mission in northern Syria and facilitate the reconciliation process there.

    Lets hope that all those “convertees” dont turn on the SAA when the battle starts.

    • seawolf

      they are well guarded

        Also consider that they would be broken up into many units.
        And would not operate as a group. :)

      The tide has well & truly turned now, they realise there’s nothing to gain fighting the army, the government cannot be overthrown & most of the SAA & its allies is in Idlib, there is no way out, the sensible ones won’t die for nothing, only HTS feel that way.

        Shit. Those moderate militias and Damascus realized years ago that they had nothing to gain by fighting each other. They reached an agreement that allowed the SAA to attend to matters elsewhere while the moderates made life miserable for the extremists in their areas so they would leave.

        Many who were tempted into the FSA have now seen the horrors of Wahabi Rule at 1st hand and realise the error they made I think

  • yudha bdg

    I hope they will defect and regroup with their true comrades

      Do what, you knob-head ?.

      You can hope. But if that’s your best hope you might as well give up as you’ve lost the war. Of course the war was lost three years ago when the Russians joined in, but hey, why give and put an end to this war when you can go Götterdammerung, Hitlerstyle, and get thousands more killed for nothing?

      I wish you would Yudha. You could then enjoy being in a Thermobaric blast :)

    The Protection and the Right to survive the Syrian culture. This is a big thing to The Russian.
    We Must make 100% sure that Syrian Culture must survive.
    I do not speak for all Russians, but all Russians will agree with me. Thats the thing.

        Theresa May even needs puppet strings to dance. Her attempt at looking ‘cool’ during her African visit to a school was one of the most cringing and embarrassing things I have seen. :)

        She would have far better to have just smiled and clapped her hands a little .

        • You can call me Al

          I have “man dreams” most nights, but after seeing her, my bits and bobs seem to have given up and dont want to play.

          That video will go down in history as a male sterilisation tool.

            Theresa was also ‘very naughty’ when she posed full frontal and stark naked in the mid to late 70’s stark naked by the Baltic Sea in East Germany with Angela Merkel and the current president of Lithuania. I think I shared that image with you a few months ago Al. :)

          • You can call me Al

            Oh yuk, please, enough.
