Last week, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division surprised the Islamist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda) with a powerful offensive at the southeastern countryside of Hama City, capturing several important villages between the latter and the large city of Al-Salamiyah.

Among these collection of villages captured by the Syrian Armed Forces last week, the Jabhat Al-Nusra stronghold of Al-Durrah was perhaps their most important seizure, as it was used by the aforementioned terrorist group to launch repeated attacks on the provincial capital of the Hama Governorate.

With almost every village captured along the Al-Assi River’s northern bank, the Syrian Arab Army shifts their attention to the last and most important town that is under Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s control.

The town of Taqsis is the gateway to the southern bank of the Al-Assi River; if captured, the Syrian Armed Forces can use the  high ground and shallow water to make their way to the Hama-Homs axis that leads to the Al-Rastan Plains.

On Wednesday night, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division – in coordination with the SAA’s 47th Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – began their long-anticipated assault on Taqsis, striking the town’s northern perimeter under the cover of the Russian Air Force’s fighter jets.

Currently, clashes are ongoing at the northern perimeter of Taqsis and they have been all night – the fighting will likely intensify in the coming hours as the sun comes up.

Iacovos Pierides, I wondered same thing. It makes for horrific viewing, like Bosnia or Germany. I see the news tell us its rebel held but hezzbolah are on all checkpoints on towns edge. That the regime wont allow any food into civilians, some activists are saying they must surrender the rebels to get food, the starvation is making people do crazy things. So are we to believe the regime is killing its own or do they believe all left in the town are rebel and its supporters. Grim viewing which may act like the kursdish boy on the turkish beach.… Read more »
