"The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is mass mobilizing their troops at the Hama-Idlib axis as they prepare to launch their long-awaited offensive to retake the Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
Several units from the Tiger Forces, 4th Division, and Republican Guard been pouring into northeastern Hama for this upcoming offensive, while their allies from the Russian Air Force heavily bombard Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions in this region." AMN
Why Abu Dhuhour? If you look at a map or a facility chart you will see that Abu Duhour has two long runways, a lot of facility buildings and is centrally located with regard to both Raqqa City and all of Idlib Province. It is about a hundred miles from Raqqa. It would seem that R+6 want a large forward base for operations in the next phase of the reconquista. That makes sense to me.
At the same time DJT is meeting in VN with Putin where he will discuss Syria. Hope for the best. pl
