BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their advance in northern Hama this evening after seizing several areas earlier in the day.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army attacked a number of points under the control of Jaysh Al-Izza in northern Hama tonight.

According to a military source in northern Hama, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture the town of Jaysat and nearby Damyoun Farms after a short battle with the militants of Jaysh Al-Izza.

With these latest losses, the militants of Jaysh Al-Izza find themselves on the verge of expulsion from the Hama Governorate.

The Syrian Arab Army has already concentrated their artillery and airstrikes on the Jaysh Al-Izza strongholds of Kafr Zita and Al-Latamnah; however, they have yet to storm these important towns on the border of the Idlib Governorate.

At the same time, it appears Turkey is not willing to abandon their observation posts in the Hama Governorate, despite the fact their allied forces have suffered several battlefield setbacks.

On Thursday, opposition activists reported that several Turkish military vehicles made their way to the observation post in the Hama Governorate town of Sheir Magher.

In the past, the Turkish observation post in Sheir Magher has come under attack by the Syrian Arab Army; this would result in the death of two Turkish military personnel.

The Syrian Army has repeatedly called on Turkey to withdraw their troops from these observation posts; however, Ankara has refused, claiming that they are peacekeeping forces.

Que siga la ofensiva, no mas alto al fuego, los observatorios tendrán que retirarse si el ejercito sigue avanzando mas allá del llamado observatorio que sólo sirve para suministrar armas de guerra a los terroristas.

Well, the observation posts will look really stupid once in the middle of SAA lines, especially if SAA jams all communications and cuts the water…
