Non-Syrian Terrorist Commanders Leaving Idlib for Saudi Arabia Ahead of Gov't Forces Operation
August 12, 2018

TEHRAN (FNA)- A large number of foreign commanders of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front [aka Al Qaeda]) have left Idlib for Saudi Arabia as the Syrian Army is preparing to launch a large-scale operation in the Northwestern province, local sources disclosed.

Sources living in Idlib region quoted militants as saying that a large number of non-Syrian commanders of Tahrir al-Sham have left for Saudi Arabia on the pretext of Hajj pilgrimage, adding that the army's preparation to kick off a major assault to free Idlib and other regions in Northern Syria is the main cause behind the commanders' move.

The sources said that Abu Yaqzan Mesri along with a groups of Tahrir al-Sham commanders in Idlib and Northern Hama have left Syria for Saudi Arabia via Turkey, claiming that they intend to go on Hajj pilgrimage.

"Members of these groups have called on the Russian forces in desparate attempts since a week ago to mediate and end of battle and grant of government amnesty to them," they added.

On Saturday, the army dispatched one of the largest military convoys of the government forces, including a large number of infantries, military vehicles and heavy equipment to Northern Hama in line with preparing for an imminent operation to drive terrorists out of Idlib province, parts of Northern Hama, Southern Aleppo and al-Ghaab Plain.

The entire Syrian army units, including special forces, will take part in the upcoming operation.

Military experts say that the army will kick off its operation by liberating the two key towns of Kafr Zita and al-Latamina in Northern Hama that are located along the Damascus Highway to Aleppo.

The army soldiers will also push their way to al-Ghaab Plain in order to retake the historical town of Qal’at al-Madiq.

From Qal’at al-Madiq, the army men will make their way North towards the Jisr Al-Shughour region for the first time since they withdrew from the area in May of 2015.
