BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – A large convoy of troops from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was reportedly dispatched to the Idlib and Hama provinces as rumors of a new offensive continue.

“Massive military convoys of the Syrian Army comprising hundreds of soldiers from different divisions, including 5th Division, along with military equipment and hardware have been sent to the Northern fronts of Hama province from the cities of al-Mayadeen and al-Bu Kamal in Eastern Deir Ezzur,” the Fars News Agency reported on Saturday, citing local field sources.

“They reiterated that the Syrian Army has reinforced its positions and forces in all villages and towns of Hayalin, Talmalh, al-Jabin, Sheikh Hadid, al-Moghir, Bridij garrison and al-Jurnia in Western Hama over the past two days, and said that there is a strong likelihood that the Syrian Army will launch massive operation in Idlib province soon,” they added.

The Syrian Arab Army has been amassing troops near the Idlib demilitarized zone over the last week; however, the reasoning for the troop build-up has been unknown.
