Sources close to Al-Masdar News have revealed the arrival of Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan (“Al-Nimr”) and his contingent from the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces brigade “Al-Qawat Al-Nimr” (Tiger Forces) in the province of Aleppo.
The Tiger Forces will be under the direct command of 1st. Sergeant Lu’ayy Sleitan, while Colonel Al-Hassan advises from afar.
