BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10  P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a heavy attack against the Turkish-backed rebels in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate this morning.

According to a military source in nearby Mhardeh, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard unleashed a flurry of missiles and artillery shells towards the positions of Jaysh Al-Izza near the town of Morek.

The source said that the missiles targeted Jaysh Al-Izza’s bases and trenches that have been built around the Morek lines.

He added that despite the large presence of Turkish soldiers near Morek, no missiles or artillery shells hit the latter’s positions at their observation post.

So they are operating near Turk posts as ISIS operates near US occupied areas. I do predict when things heat up the turks will bug out. These terrorists in Idlib will not have an airforce to protect them nor will the Turk soldiers.
