BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a large offensive earlier this week that targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the strategic town of Ma’an in the northern countryside of Hama.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s offensive was initially successful in the northern countryside of Hama, as they seized several points from the Syrian Arab Army’s 47th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division.

However, the offensive would take a turn for the worse when reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces arrived to drive back the Al-Qaeda linked militants and retake the territory they lost.

As a result of this attack, more than 80 jihadists were killed, including Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s so-called ’emir’ of Aleppo.

The video footage below was released by a soldier with the Tiger Forces; it shows several dead jihadists near the town of Ma’an:

Since the jihadist offensive, the Syrian Arab Army has taken the initiative in northern Hama, launching several attacks near the Idlib Governorate border in a new bid to advance in this area.

Was this done by artillery, tank bombardment or an airstrike?
