"As-Safir" Lebanese newspaper revealed that 18 Egyptian pilots arrived at Hama military airport about twenty days ago, in accordance with the military support provided by the el-Sisi’s regime to the al-Assad’s.

The newspaper, which is close to Hezbollah reported “Those pilots belonging to an Egyptian unit with helicopters” without stating whether they had begun working or not in any air operations, noting that being joined and selected from the formation of the Egyptian hovercraft reflects an Egyptian-Syrian decision to speed up the integration of Egyptian air force in the ongoing military operations over Syria.

As-Safir pointed out that the unit headed by four senior officers of the Egyptian General Staff as they arrived at Syria and in the headquarters of the Syrian General Staff of Damascus there are two Egyptians major generals have been operating for a month close to the operating room, quoting well-informed Arab sources that the two Egyptian generals have been making exploratory tours around the Syrian frontlines, since their arrival in Damascus a month ago.

The paper said:" the Egyptian officers’ evaluating processes included most of fronts, most recently the southern front of Quneitra, and the forces’ separation lines in the occupied Golan Heights in addition to Daraa frontlines.

The Egyptian officers took part, Tuesday, at an evaluation meeting for the fifth division’s operations region in the al-Assad army which deployed around Daraa, holding a meeting between the Egyptian officers and counterpart officers of the al-Assad regime in the fifth division headquarters in the city of “Izraa”, after an exploratory visit carried out by the two sides to the air base of “Tha’lah” in the countryside of As-Suwayda Governorate.

The Egyptian unity had arrived three weeks after a visit to Cairo on the seventeenth of last October by Major General “Ali Mallouk” Chairman of the National Security Bureau, to meet with Major General “Khaled Fawzi” deputy head of Egypt's national security apparatus.

Sources quoted a senior Syrian security official, as saying that the Egyptians had promised the Syrian side to send troops to Syria, though a date beyond the twenty-third of next January will be “zero point”, of which the pace of the Egyptian military involvement will go further in Syria, without any formal prove for such an engagement’s roof.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said in a statement two days ago that his regime is to support the al-Assad's army without explaining the nature of the support.
