BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) unleashed a major assault across the southeastern axis of the Idlib province this evening, a military source told Al-Masdar News.
According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army heavily pounded the jihadist defenses in southeast Idlib with a plethora of artillery shells and surface-to-surface missiles.
The source said the primary targets for the Syrian Arab Army were the trenches and military posts for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in the towns of Al-Taman’ah, Khuwayn, Babulin, Haish, Jarjanaz, Um Jalal, and Mashirfah Shmaliyah .
In retaliation for the Syrian Army assault, the jihadist rebels began shelling the government towns of Ma’an, Um Hariteen, and ‘Atshan.
This latest exchange between the Syrian military and jihadist rebels comes as the Sochi Agreement falls apart in northwestern Syria.
