AhlulBayt News Agency - The Syrian government’s long-awaited offensive to liberate the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor Highway has been put on hold after the Syrian opposition forces cancelled the open-ended ceasefire; thus, forcing the High Command of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to redeploy several units to more pressing fronts.

This news became official when the High Command of the Syrian Arab Army confirmed the departure of the Desert Hawks Brigade (Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) and the Panther Forces (Tiger Forces brigade) from the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur).

The Desert Hawks officially redeployed to the Jisr Al-Shughour front after the extremist rebels launched several offensives inside the Latakia Governorate to recapture the territory they conceded to the Syrian Arab Army and their allies over the last 6 months.

Meanwhile, the Panther Forces – led by Colonel ‘Ali Shaheen – were given orders to redeploy to the Al-Ghaab Plains front, which came under attack by Jund Al-Aqsa earlier yesterday morning.

Despite the departure of these units, the Tiger Forces brigade that is commanded by Colonel Shady Isma’eel and the 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division will remain at Palmyra to protect the city from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
