A large number of reinforcements from the provinces of Tartous and Homs have been sent to the Northwestern battlefields of the country to join the Syrian Armed Forces’ large-scale operation in Idlib province, military sources said.

"Several armored vehicles arrived to the Kurds Mountain (Jabal Al-Akrad) last night as part of a new wave of fighters that are set to replace the battle-hardened Desert Hawks (Liwa Suqour Al-Sahra) after they were transferred to the Palmyra (Tadmur) front," the sources said.

The source added that these legions of reinforcements are from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and will be tasked with protecting the captured territory while the Syrian Marines, the Special Forces, and the Republican Guard advance East.

In addition to reinforcements from the National Defense Forces, the Syrian Arab Army will also be joined by several military contingents of Iraqi combatants; however, the number of personnel participating is still unknown.

While the government forces continue to mobilize men and women for this imminent offensive, the Syrian army troops are still advancing at the strategic town of Kabani on the border of Idlib.

Once Kabani is captured, the Syrian forces will split-up: one unit will push West towards the al-Ghaab Plains, while another legion will push Northwest towards the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour.

On Wednesday, the terrorist groups in Syria admitted that the al-Nusra Front terrorist group is evacuating all its sites and positions and retreating from the town of Abu al-Dhuhour in Idlib province.

A military source reported that militants' coordination room has informed other militant groups that the al-Nusra Front has started the process of leaving its positions in Abu al-Dhuhour as part of its preparations to retreat further back to other militant held regions, FNA reported.
