DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:15 P.M.) – Jihadi groups in Syria’s Hama resumed their full-scale offensive, targeting with three VBIEDs the government stronghold of Qamhana.

While the defending forces succeeded in prematurely destroying 2 VBIEDs, the third suicide bomber made his way to the checkpoint at the entrance of the town, thus breaking through the Army’s defensives.

Fierce clashes followed the explosion where a number of jihadists infiltrated the edge of the town. Pro-rebel media accounts claim the clashes are now taking place inside the town; however, AMN hasn’t been able to verify such claim.

The fall of Qamhana to the jihadi coalition – led by the internationally-designated terror group Jabhet al-Nusra – would be a major blow for the government forces.

The resilient town – which has never been taken over by rebels before – is located directly to the west of the strategic Jabal Zayn al-Abdin mountain.

Now serving as an imperative Army base, the mountain was heavily targeted by rebel homegrown rockets in an attempt to curb the artillery units positioned there.

Earlier today, huge rebel reinforcements were seen pouring into the battlefront in Hama, including Turkish Military vehicles.

Hope they are stopped. They are known to murder civilians. Like IS.


They are not Jihadi rebels. They are are Turkish invaders and Turkman terrorists together with other terrorist denominations. The tank in the forefront of the photo in caption is Turkish and so the armoured veihicle in the background. The Syrian Arab army shuld take tge battle to the heartland of these terrorists right in the centre of Idleb and liberate the Town from these invading head choppers.
