BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) capture of Tal Malah and Jibeen in northwestern Hama was short-lived on Saturday as a swift jihadist counter-offensive managed to reverse all of their advances.

According to a military source in northwestern Hama, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies from Jaysh Al-Izza were able to retake Tal Malah and Jibeen after raining down several missiles and artillery shells on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions.

Unable to fortify their positions on Tal Malah, the Syrian Arab Army was forced to retreat once the jihadist rebels began storming the hilltop and nearby town of Jibeen.

As a result of this counter-offensive, the jihadists have once again forced the closure of the main road linking the government strongholds of Sqaylabiyeh and Mhardeh in northwestern Hama.

The Syrian Arab Army is now launching a heavy barrage of missiles and artillery shells towards Tal Malah in preparation for another attack to capture this strategic site from the jihadist rebels and their allies.

Los terroristas de Erdogan tienen bastante publicidad. El ejercito Sirio está dando pena por falta de inteligencia y estrategia de guerra.

Changing history again. Always the favorite of anti semites. And than there are the fools that upvote this garbage. Everybody knows the world has just one religion that has been agressive from the start for some 1400 years and still is agressive. The only backward religion that wants to live like in the 7th century, where all its leaders glorify that but secretly live a hedonistic live abroad or in secluded palaces. The only religion that promotes theocracy where old goats in dresses want to deflower girls of 9 years because Mohamrd did it to and they have to follow… Read more »
