DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:00 P.M.) – The Syrian government forces – backed by local fighters and Russian Air Force – managed to curb the advance made by jihadi groups in northern Hama countryside and began a decisive counter-offensive to recover the lost villages and towns.

Today, the government troops recaptured al-Shiha Hiltop located to the north of al-Shiha town, thus paving the way to re-open the strategic Hama-Mahardah road.

To the east, jihadi rebels were forced to retreat from the al-Samman Hilltop (Point 50) located to the north of Qamhana, a government-controlled town which has been the main target for rebels for the last few days.

Meanwhile, Syrian and Russian fighter jets conducted heavy airstrikes on rebel positions in Halfaya and Al-Lataminah; both towns serve as the launch-pad for rebel forces to attack the Christian city of Mahardah.

    • Well, no, avoid to cook rats : it has reputation to stink even more than the famous Maroilles cheese which compared to, a crazy stinking foot is not so strong stinking (thus, the Maroilles is great to eat, I doubt rats being so : even Chinese don’t eat them).
      Seriously, better mix pork grease in bombs and shells and advertise, so they’ll think they’ll go to hell (which they’ll go any way if there is one).
      Now all western anti-terrorist teams use gun-oil with 13% pork fat in, Israelis put pig grease everywhere grease is needed in public places, buses, etc! Since they do it, suicide bombings have crazy felt!
      Guess why we love porks 😆
