BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Nasr continued their large-scale offensive in the northern Hama countryside today, capturing two more villages from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the Hama-Idlib Highway.

According to a military source in Hama City, the jihadist rebels seized the villages of Iskendariyah and Kawkab after advancing south from the recently captured town of Souran.

With Kawkab and Iskendariyah under their control, the jihadist rebels will likely turn their attention to the key town of Ma’an, which was recaptured by the Syrian Arab Army late last year.

The Syrian Arab Army has sent reinforcements to the Hama front; however, a major counter-offensive won’t likely come for a while, due to the fact they will need to free up some of their important offensive units like the Tiger Forces who are already involved in the Aleppo operations.

  1. From the videos posted by the invading Turkish foreign mercenary terror squads it is clear that there are no airstrikes to contain these terrorists. On the contrary, airstrikes are being heard in the distance and seem to be supportng this invasion. Is the Turkish airforce clearing the way of Syrian Arab Army soldiers for these invading forces and terrorists to advance?

  2. As I said tens of times before, the SAA (which we all support) can’t fight and win on every front. Thus, it is crucial to make peace with some of the less extremist rebels. The fights should only be focused on Nusra and ISIS.

    The warmongers should go and hide their head now

  3. Turkey supplied the heavy ordnance for this offensive. No other way.

    Erdogan is in bed with these Jihadist dogs. Turkey will get domestic, terrorist pleas.

    p.s. Turk aim is to extend the live of IS and to tie up SDF and SAA as long as possible. The aim is IMHO a Turkmens statlet around Manbij.
