BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a new assault on the besieged Shiite towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya in rural Idlib tonight, the National Defense Forces (NDF) reported.

According to the NDF, intense clashes broke-out at the eastern outskirts of Kafraya when the jihadist rebels, led by their Uzbeki foreign fighters, attacked their positions from the Barouma Farms.

Thus far, the pro-government forces have managed to fend off the jihadist advances, but fierce clashes are still ongoing.

For the past four days, the jihadist rebels have launched repeated attacks on Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, prompting the Syrian and Russian air forces to remain active in the Idlib Governorate.

These attacks by the rebel forces is a clear violation of the Astana peace conference agreement, which called for all parties to adhere to a strict ceasefire in the Idlib Governorate.
