DAMASCUS, SYRIA (21:55 P.M.) – On Wednesday around noon, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) launched a surprise assault on a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoint near the government-held Houla Dam in the northern Homs countryside.

Advancing from the rebel-held town of Taldou, jihadist militants attempted to infiltrate SAA outposts on the northern outskirts of Fallah village.

However, the jihadist attack did not go to plan as it thoroughly repelled by the SAA’s garrison, resulting in an estimated 20 HTS casualties.

In the aftermath, Syrian troops discovered ID papers on three dead militants, identified as Khaled Al-Tuwyhi, Ibrahim Qadour and Abd Allah Al-Khaleef (HTS field commander).

Most of the killed fighters were retrieved by the Al-Qaeda affiliated faction as the latter was forced to call off its attack, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

Meanwhile, inside the provincial capital of Homs, rebel forces are in the process of evacuation from the Al-Waer suburb after a deal was agreed upon on March 10.
