Dozens of Jaysh Al-Fateh fighters were killed in the group’s latest offensive against Army posts in southern outskirts of Idlib province.

The attack, launched on Saturday night, aimed to capture the government’s last strongholds in the province. However, it seems the Syrian Arab Army had a different narrative.

Local sources told Al-Masdar that hundreds of fighters launched a wide-scale offensive on Tal Khattab where Army troops retreated for a few miles only to pound the militant’s gatherings with different types of missiles leaving most of the infiltrators dead.

In Zayzoun dam, tens of Islamic fighters were ambushed by the Army as they were attempting to break into the area. Most of the attackers were killed, the rest fled wounded. “The lake turned red as militants were shot dead”, the sources said.

The offensive was orchestrated by Emir of Ajnad Kavkas Abdul Hakim Al-Shishani. Since the outset of Syrian crisis on March 2011, thousands of extremist fighters from the Caucasus travelled to Syria to join the fight alongside terror groups against President Bashar Assad and establish a de facto “Islamic Emirate” in the area.

Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) is an alliance of forces formed on last March, made up primarily of al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhet Al-Nusra, along
with numerous Islamist rebel factions mainly active in Idlib, Hama andLattakia. The alliance managed to establish control over large areas including Jisr Al-Shughour and Al-Qarmeed Camp.
