BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a major offensive in the eastern countryside of Hama today, targeting the Wadi Al-Azeeb area that is under the control of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

ISIL began the offensive by launching a lightening-like assault across two axes in the Wadi Al-Azeeb area, resulting in heavy clashes that are still ongoing at the moment.

While the terrorist group hasn’t seized anything of significance, the government has forced to close the Salamiyah-Ithriya Highway due to security concerns for civilians traveling through the area.

The Islamic State often launches attacks in this area as a way to harass the Syrian government forces and deter them from launching offensive operations.
