BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) unleashed a heavy attack against a group of foreign jihadists in the southwestern countryside of the Idlib Governorate this afternoon.

Using their MLRS launchers, the Syrian Arab Army pounded the defenses of the Turkestan Islamic Party this afternoon, scoring a number of direct hits on their positions inside the Al-Ghaab Plain towns of Bidama and Najiyah.

According to a source in northwest Syria, the Syrian Arab Army managed to kill several foreign jihadists during the attack, while also damaging a network of trenches.

The Syrian Arab Army followed up this attack by launching a barrage of artillery shells and surface-to-surface missiles towards Jaysh Al-Izza’s defenses inside the town of Al-Latamnah.

This attack on Al-Latamnah comes just hours after Jaysh Al-Izza militants attempted to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s lines near Mhardeh last night.

Forget about little attacks, a full offensive is required on Idlib, point.
