BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – The battle for northwestern Syria has recently intensified following a large-scale counter-offensive by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their Turkish-backed rebel allies.

On Tuesday, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies were able to score an important advance in northwestern Hama when their forces managed to retake the key town of Kafr Naboudeh from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Since retaking Kafr Naboudeh, the jihadist rebels have come under heavy attack from both the Syrian military and Russian Air Force. Last night, the Russian Air Force launched over 20 airstrikes in the area, with most of their strikes targeting Kafr Naboudeh itself.

As illustrated in the map above, the front-lines have not changed very much over the course of a week; however, the capture of Kafr Naboudeh by the jihadist forces is an important advance, regardless of how little the progress looks on the map.

The Syrian Arab Army was able to push back into Kafr Naboudeh on Wednesday, but they were ultimately forced to withdraw after failing to breach the jihadist lines at the northern district of the town.

It is still not clear whether or not the Syrian Army will attempt to retake Kafr Naboudeh in the coming days; it is a very difficult town to hold if you do not hold the hills to its east.

Espero que le sirva de lección al gobierno Sirio, a Putín, nunca se debió permitir negociar con el gobierno Turco, estas son las consecuencias por hacer caso a Erdogan.
