BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has begun striking Jaysh Al-Izza’s positions at Zakah and Arbaeen in northern Hama after the collapse of the conditional ceasefire on Monday.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began their attack by firing a large barrage of missiles and artillery shells towards the two towns of Zakah and Arbaeen near the Jaysh Al-Izza strongholds of Al-Latamnah and Kafr Zita.
A source from the army said the Syrian Army said the military has not yet stormed the area, pointing that this is the preliminary strikes before the operation.
He continued that the Syrian Arab Army could make a push to capture Zakah and Arbaeen this evening; however, nothing is definite at this point.
The source added that all reports claiming the Syrian Army is storming these areas are false, as they have yet to make a push.
