BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – This morning, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-‘Izza suffered their biggest setback of the weekend, following the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) capture of the strategic town of Sinjar in southern Idlib.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Army broke-through the jihadist lines in southern Idlib this morning, paving the way for their troops to capture three towns en route to later seizing Sinjar.

Not long after capturing Sinjar from the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces pushed southeast towards the town of Sar’a in a bid to secure the area and ensure the HTS supply line to Khan Sheikhoun is cut for good.

The Syrian Army would take control of Sar’a shortly after launching the attack, forcing the jihadist rebels to fall further back into the Idlib countryside.

With this latest advance, the Syrian Army is now 15km south of the Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
