Syrian Army’s 4th Division heads to northwest Syria for Jisr Al-Shughour offensive
The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Armored Division has left the Daraa and Sweida provinces for northwest Syria, tonight, a military source told Al-Masdar News.
According to the military source, the 4th Division left southern Syria with a large arsenal of missile launchers and armored vehicles.
In addition to their equipment, the 4th Division is bringing thousands of soldiers that were previously deployed inside the Damascus Governorate.
The 4th Armored Division will be leading their own attack that is separate from the Tiger Forces.
The Tiger Forces will begin their attack along the Idlib-Hama axis, while the 4th Division is believed to be leading the charge in the Al-Ghaab Plain.
Both the Tiger Forces and 4th Division are two of the Syrian Arab Army’s most successful divisions and their battle experience should play an integral role in the offensive.
