The Arab Nationalist Guard showed up in #Hama on May 5, its leaders pictured here with Col Ghaith Dala of the #4th_division #42nd_Brigade

Wondering if this might be where yesterday's #Palestinian martyrs came from
#Tiger_Forces Hoareth Regiment Field Commander Zain al-Abadeen Abu Ali inside #KafrNabudah today. He arrived on the front line last night (see two tweets above)
On May 7 "Hawks of the Lion" groups of the Military Security Branch 219 reportedly reached the Hama frontlines

Mazan & Brig Gen Kahla filmed themselves eating "Russian breakfast" this morning on the frontlines w/ their Russian officer attache & his security (same Russian was w/ them on May 5, pic 2)

The 79th & 86th Battalions of the #6th_Brigade of the #5th_Corps arrived at the #Hama military airport yesterday (approx 200 men)
(pic is likely old)

Brigade is led by Brig General Ali Ali
#6th_Corps is NOT #Russia|n affiliated - it's the Military Intelligence contribution to the #5th_Corps & its officers are almost all from infamous #Palestine Branch in #Damascus

Their commanders are "brutal beyond compare" & see themselves as Mil Intel more than 5th Corps
