Eastern Lattakia & Ghab Plain map update: 18-4-2016

A conglomeration of ultra-extremist groups waged today morning a violent attack on the government-held town of Khirbet al-Naqous in Hama countryside, forcing the Army to retreat from several positions and barricades.

According to a field commander, the Syrian Armed Forces prematurely blew up a VBIED with a guided anti-amour missile, killing the Saudi suicide bomber Abu Musa’ab al-Jazrawi.

“Hundreds of militants from Jund- al-Aqsa, Turkistan Islamic Party and al-Nusra Front simultaneously attacked our fortifications in Khirbet al-Naqous. We pulled out to assimilate the offensive”, the field commander said.

In a related context, pro-rebel social media accounts reported that rebel command lost the radio contact with a group of militants who tried to infiltrate into Khirbet al-Naqous after being hit by a Syrian fighter jet.

The government troops attempted yesterday to advance east of Khirbet al-Naqous, aiming to recapture the strategic Grain Silos in Al-Mansoura. However, the hardline militants managed to repel the assault and launch a counterattack.

FSA? You mean Al-Nusra. And it matters not. Syria has a huge force less than 10 kms from this point that are obviously going to be in route.
