BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 A.M.) – This week has been relatively quiet in comparison to the last few weeks in northwestern Syria, as the jihadist rebels have been the only group that has launched any ground assault in this region.

On Tuesday, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham attempted to retake the town of Qasabiyah from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); however, their assault would end in over 30 casualties within their own ranks.

Meanwhile, in central Syria, the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched a surprise attack against the Syrian Arab Army troops north of Al-Sukhnah.

According to a military source in nearby Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Army suffered over ten casualties after the Islamic State terrorists ambushed their forces at a number of checkpoints between Al-Rusafa and Al-Sukhnah.

Some other attacks that took place across Syria:

  • Jihadist rebels ambush Syrian Army soldiers near the town of Al-Haffa in northern Latakia.
  • Syrian Army fires several missiles towards the northern Hama towns of Kafr Zita and Al-Latamnah.
  • Jaysh Al-Izza fired several missiles at the Hama Airbase.
  • Syrian Army fired missiles at Maar Tahroma, Sufuhon and Khan Shaykhun in southern Idlib countryside.
  • Head of reconciliation committee in the northern Daraa town of Uthman was killed when unknown assailants opened fire on his vehicle along the Yadudah-Muzayrib road.
  • A car bomb attack struck Qamishli city. According to sources, the attack targeted a YPG base, causing several casualties in the process.
