BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – Not much has changed between the months of June and July, despite some advances by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama.

These advances helped the Syrian Arab Army seal off the northwestern corridor of the Hama Governorate since the first major militant offensive in the region.

However, despite their advances in Hama, the Syrian Arab Army was unable to achieve the same type of success in the Latakia Governorate, as the key town of Kabani still remains firmly in the hands of the jihadist rebels.

Since the Syrian Arab Army’s advance in Hama, a conditional ceasefire has been put in place in a bid to force the militants to withdraw from the demilitarized zone.

As of now, the militants have rejected the proposed ceasefire and they have refused to withdraw from the demilitarized zone.

The Syrian Army has given them until the end of Eid on August 16th to withdrawal, but its highly unlikely that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their militant allies will leave the demilitarized zone.
