BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a powerful counter-offensive on Monday that targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the Hamamiyat axis in northwestern Hama.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and other militant elements, the jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in a bid to collapse the latter’s lines and overwhelm their forces.

The firefights would last for a short period of time on Monday and result in heavy casualties for all parties involved.

However, the jihadist assault on the Hamamiyat axis would ultimately fail after they failed to breach the Syrian Arab Army’s lines on more than occassion.

According to a military source in Hama city, the jihadist rebels could not find any weak point along the Syrian Army’s front-lines, despite throwing several of their militants towards the government’s defenses on many occassions.

The source added that the majority of the casualties from both sides were jihadists that ran in front of the Syrian Army’s machine gun fire.

Since losing Kafr Naboudeh and Qal’at Al-Madiq, the jihadist rebels have repeatedly tried to recover the areas they lost to the Syrian Arab Army in northwestern Hama and southern Idlib.
