Two days after the Syrian Armed Forces captured the strategically located hilltop of Tal Hamki, the conglomerate of Al-Qaeda affiliates that form “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) launched their own counter-offensive on Tuesday morning, attacking the northern perimeter of the hill amid the multitude of rockets and mortar shells raining down on their positions.

Following their initial assault on the northern perimeter of Tal Hamki, the Jaysh Al-Fateh combatants launched another assault before noon on Tuesday; this time, capturing the northern perimeter after fierce clashes with the Syrian Armed Forces that resulted in the loss of a number of their fighters during their second attack on Tal Hamki.

Despite their success, the largest forces in Jaysh Al-Fateh – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – were unable to secure the southern perimeter of Tal Hamki; instead, they are currently engaged in a violent firefight with the Syrian Arab Army’s 87th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF)

Meanwhile, west of Tal Hamki, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in coordination with Liwaa Al-Assoud Al-Jabal (Lions of the Mountain Brigade) and the National Defense Forces – continued their progress near the town of Qarqour, killing 18 enemy combatants from Jaysh Al-Fateh, while advancing northwest towards the imperative city of Jisr Al-Shughour.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) carried out over 60 airstrikes in the province of Idlib, targeting the cities of Kafr Nabl, Idlib City, Sarmeen, Ariha, Jisr Al-Shughour, Ma’arat Misreen, Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, and Frikka.
