Syrian special forces tasked with new Aleppo offensive

DAMASCUS, SYRIA 02/11/2016 (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” have been tasked to lead the new Aleppo offensive that is expected to begin in the coming days as the jihadist attack winds down in the western suburbs.

Led by their charismatic commander, Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan, the Tiger Forces will concentrate on the western and southern suburbs of Aleppo, despite ongoing operations inside the rebel-held eastern districts.

Joining the Tiger Forces will be the elite paramilitary group, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade); they were recently deployed to Aleppo after a long deployment in the northern countryside of the Latakia Governorate.

Unlike the previous offensives in Aleppo City, this assault will not be halted for any reason, a military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

The Syrian Armed Forces have been scrutinized by western regimes for their ongoing military operations against the jihadist rebels inside the provincial capital of Aleppo.
