BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched a major counter-offensive in northwestern Hama this morning after being on the defensive for much of Saturday.

Led by the Tiger Forces and their commander Major General Suheil Al-Hassan, the Syrian Arab Army began their counter-offensive this morning by storming the jihadist defenses at the key hilltop of Tal Malah.

According to a military source, fierce clashes are now taking place at the western axis of Tal Malah as the Syrian Arab Army pushes to recapture this hilltop.

Once Tal Malah is retaken, the Syrian Arab Army can move their troops to the nearby town of Jibeen, which was captured by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies from Jaysh Al-Izza on Thursday evening.

With over 150 militants and 50 Syrian soldiers killed in the last 72 hours, this battle in northwestern Hama has proven to be the deadliest battles fought inside of Syria this year.
