BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen launched a surprise attack in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate last night.
According to a military source in Aleppo, Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen stormed the Syrian Army’s positions at the Ruwaydah axis in a bid to overwhelm them and kill their soldiers.
The jihadist group claimed they killed several Syrian Arab Army soldiers during the attack; however, a military source near the attack site said that they suffered a couple of injuries from the gunfire.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army was able to kill at least two of the Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen fighters, while also injuring a couple others during the fierce exchange.
Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen has carried out several surprise attacks like this in the past, with the majority of them taking place in northwestern Syria.
