BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a big offensive in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate this morning, a source from the Syrian Army told Al-Masdar News.

Led by the Rouse the Believers, the jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Tal Maraq axis near the front-line town of ‘Atshan.

According to the Syrian Army source, intense firefights are taking place at the Tal Maraq axis at this time; however, not advances have been made by the jihadist rebels.

Tuesday’s offensive by Rouse the Believers marks the first time since they lost both Khan Sheikhoun and their northern Hama pocket that they have launched an attack like this in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

While the jihadist rebels attempt to advance in southern Idlib, the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to launch the second phase of their northwestern Syria offensive.

This next phase of the Syrian Army offensive will target both the town of Ta’manah and the Al-Ghaab Plain.

Rouse the believers soon to become Rouse the Dead. They are welcome to attack as it makes it easier to find them and they can die together. Might have to share their virgins but they should have died earlier and got in early.

I think the SAA should mobilize about 150,000 men (based on the size of idlib). And launch a massive operation across a large front. Intense firepower and shock advance and the jihadist lines will collapse in quick succession.

Best thing to do is a 2 front operation working in push-pull.
What could be VERY interesting, but you need a plan to rapidly secure taken areas, again, as a 2 pronged offensive, it’s a blitzkrieg along the border in order to “hermetically” close it.
= no ammos/weapons supplies, terrorists trapped inside Syria.
Bad sides :
– Longer frontlines to secure
– They won’t be able to flee the country, you have to neutralise them all
Good sides
– No supplies+reinforcements = they’ll weaken rapidly
– They’ll all gonna pay
– They’ll neither come back nor do the same in other countries
