BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – Elite forces of the Syrian Arab Army have dealt a powerful blow to jihadist-led militias in the provinces of Hama and Idlib following a renewed assault aimed at capitalizing of yesterday’s advances in the region.

According to military-affiliated sources, on Thursday morning, troops of the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division struck at jihadist defenses along the provincial border between northeast Hama and southeast Idlib from multiple axes, advancing under cover of heavy artillery bombardment and airstrikes by Russian and Syrian warplanes.

Whilst the assault is still ongoing, the Tiger Forces have so far managed to secure three towns and an important hilltop; the liberated towns have been identified as Mushrayifah, Dajaj and Tamat al-Kalifah and the captured high-point as Tal Mata’a.

Given the direction general direction of the Syrian Army’s advance, it appears that the town of Abu Dali (captured by Al-Qaeda-linked forces several months ago) is the immediate objective for its ongoing offensive in the region.
