BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out a deadly ambush against a group of militants in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate last night.

Using machine guns and surface-to-surface missiles, the Syrian Arab Army opened fire on the militants of Jaysh Al-‘Izza near the Idlib buffer zone.

According to a local journalists, the Syrian Army carried out the attack after they caught the jihadist rebels moving towards the Idlib buffer zone last night.

The reported said that the Syrian Arab Army’s overnight attack resulted in the death of dozens of Jaysh Al-‘Izza fighters.

The pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) stated on Friday morning that the death toll was more than 22.

Despite the arrival of more Turkish troops in northwest Syria on Wednesday, the hostilities between the Syrian Arab Army and Islamist rebels have yet to dissipate.

Since the jihadists refused to withdraw from the Idlib buffer zone on October 15th (deadline for withdrawal), the Syrian Arab Army has been carrying out attacks against the militants on a daily basis.

These Syrian Army attacks are meant to persuade the Islamist rebels to withdraw from the Idlib buffer zone; however, this has done very little to change their minds.
