BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a new wave of attacks in northwestern Hama on Wednesday, targeting the strategic town of Qal’at Al-Madiq near the Al-Ghaab Plain.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the jihadist rebels launched a heavy attack on the towns of Kurkat and Mustariyah in a bid to reach nearby Qal’at Al-Madiq. Intense clashes are now ongoing at these two towns.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their Turkish-backed rebel allies have already managed to recapture Kafr Naboudeh from the Syrian Arab Army on Wednesday. If they can retake Qal’at Al-Madiq, they will have successfully retake the two most important towns in northwestern Hama.

At this time, the Syrian Army is still trying to recapture Kafr Naboudeh from HTS; however, they have only managed to retake a part of the town. HTS has entrenched themselves deep in the northern part of Kafr Naboudeh, which is now making it hard for the Syrian Army to break through their lines.

foab roasts better and more and at a highest altitude, killing all in one square kilometer both on the surface and on the ground

Not interesting and too expensive.
A simple M270 MLRS using cluster ammos erases 1km² per salvo.
A wing of B-52 doing the Arc-Ray even more.
FOAB or MOAB are very specialised weapons, you may consider it rather to take out a network of caves/tunnels/bunkers
In fact, the best way to go is hundreds of small thermobaric cluster bombs rather than a big one.
A mix of clustered VX and Tabun would do great too but CW are banned.

Sales SAA lost the initiative here. That gives them a bad strategic position. SAA urgently needs to take the initiative in another region against the islamist.

Would be useful to make a pincher movement from the flanks : let them go in and close the pincher behind them…

Debe caer lluvia de misiles sobre este grupo de terroristas, desde el aire como de superficie, una oportunidad de matar en manada a todo el grupo de terroristas.

SAA is a fake army…they need strong air support of RUAF ( not SAF) and Hezbollah on ground to advance, repel and conquer places well defended!…SAA is useless to defend a place in spite of trench,ATGM, drones,modern machine guns etc etc..imagine to advance and retake!…

Except rebels, they don’t need air support, without Russia HTS and its allies would take Latakia within a few weeks

Israel, USA, FSA, AQ, Erdogan Rebels, HTS, Mujahideen, Jihadi Groups, ISIS, Freedom Fighters, every player on ground hating and attacking killing Assadi & Khamenis soldiers in big numbers, Whenever and Wherever they get Chances. Just last two weeks over 100 more Assadi Soldiers have died by hostile fire and ambushes. Addition to that suffering, civilised world also rejecting support for a dictator involved in heinous crimes against humanity. Assadi Forces are insignificant.

The main goal is that at least one muslim dies every day. It doesn’t matter at all if they are jihadists or whatever. If some Christians dies along in action the better. Just die.
