On Tuesday morning, the Islamist rebel factions that form “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) in northern Syria launched a powerful assault on the imperative hilltop of Tal Uthman, targeting the National Defense Forces’ (NDF) frontline positions at the northern perimeter of the hill.

Following a morning of intense firefights, Ajnad Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham were able to impose full control over Tal Uthman after the National Defense Forces withdrew to a nearby village located to the south of this hilltop.

In addition to their assault on Tal Uthman, the Islamist rebels from Ajnad Al-Sham, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army renewed their assault on the villages of Al-Mughayr, ‘Atshan, and Tal Sukeek, where they attempted to bypass the National Defense Forces’ frontline positions in the Hama Governorate’s northern countryside.

According to field reports from the National Defense Forces in northern Hama, Jaysh Al-Fateh have recently intensified their counter-offensive at Morek, ‘Atshan and Tal Sukeek in order to recapture these villages from the pro-government forces.

Despite several attempts to retake the road leading to the imperative town of Morek, the Islamist rebels from Ajnad Al-Sham, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army were unsuccessful after suffering heavy losses to the Syrian Armed Forces.
