At 3 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Tuesday morning, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a multitude of airstrikes over the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour in preparation for a large-scale assault to break the one month long siege of the National Hospital, where over 150 Syrian Arab Army soldiers, doctors, and nurses are currently protecting their encircled positions.

The SAAF’s airstrikes rained a number of bombs over the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from “Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham” and “Ajnad Al-Sham” for two hours before the Syrian Arab Army’s 87th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division, Tiger Forces, and the National Defense Forces (NDF) fired a barrage of mortar shells and rockets towards the Sugar Factory that is situated 1.5km from Jisr Al-Shughour.

Directly following their bombardment, the 87th Brigade and their allies stormed the southern axis of Kufayr, where they are currently engaged in a fierce firefight with Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham for control of this imperative town that overlooks the Syrian Government’s main supply route to the Idlib Governorate.

Meanwhile, at the strategic town of Al-Mastoumah located south of Idlib City, the NDF and SAA were able to recapture the Primary School and the southern perimeter of Tal Al-Mastouma after 24 straight hours of intense clashes with the militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jund Al-Aqsa.

Southeast of Al-Mastoumah, the SAA’s 87th Brigade countered the militants from Jaysh Al-Fateh at Muqablah, where they broke-through the enemy combatants frontline defenses and recaptured the western axis of this village near the Syrian Government stronghold of Ariha.
