BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched a new attack in southwestern Idlib this week, targeting the small town of Hamirat near the Hama border.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began this morning’s attack by storming the southern part of Hamirat. A fierce battle would ensue between the jihadist rebels and Syrian Arab Army as the latter pushed their way into the town.
The Syrian Arab Army is now attempting to seize the last few areas under the control of the jihadist rebels inside this small town in northwestern Hama.
On Monday, the Syrian Arab Army resumed their offensive in northwestern Syria after the jihadist rebels refused to respect a 48-hour ceasefire deal that was brokered by Russia and Turkey.
Following the resumption of this offensive, the Syrian Arab Army captured the small town of Al-Qasabiyah after a short battle with the jihadist rebels.
