BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:25 P.M.) – The Syrian High Command has reached a decision to launch a new offensive in northwestern Syria after a relatively quiet few weeks that saw the army remain idle in Hama, Latakia, and Idlib.

According to a military source in northwestern Syria, the Syrian Republican Guard has deployed to the northwestern region of the Hama Governorate after receiving orders to lead part of the next offensive.

The source told Al-Masdar News that the Republican Guard reinforcements are made up of units from the 104th (Airborne), 105th, and 106th brigades.

In particular, the 105th and 106th brigades have spent a great deal of time in the Latakia and Hama governorates, so they are familiar with the terrain in this part of the country.

The 106th Brigade is also comprised of many soldiers from the northern and northwestern parts of the Hama Governorate; these towns include the government strongholds of Qomhana, Mhardeh, and Masyaf.

Offensive ? Let us see the real meaning of this since Russia is still pleasing Turkey.
