BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – A jihadist group carried out a powerful attack against a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) unit that was deployed at the northern Hama front on Thursday.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the jihadist fighters fired an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) on Thursday towards a Tiger Forces unit that was positioned at the small town of Al-Hawa in northern Hama.

According to a military report, the jihadist rebels managed to score a direct hit on the Syrian Army troops, resulting in the death of at least four soldiers, including a field commander from the Tiger Forces.

In response to this attack, the Syrian military launched a big assault across southern Idlib and northern Hama, targeting many areas under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

The tit-for-tat attacks would continue throughout the day, with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham/Jaysh Al-Izza striking the government-held towns of Mhardeh and Al-Suqaylabiyeh, and the Syrian military targeting several towns under the control of the militants.

Opposition activists accused the Syrian military of killing between 18-25 people during the attack, while pro-government activists claimed HTS and Jaysh Al-Izza killed as many as 7 people in Al-Suqaylabiyeh and Mhardeh.

Since the start of April, the violence in the Hama and Idlib governorates has increased dramatically in comparison to March, as both sides blame one another for starting the hostilities around the demilitarized zone.

Wonderful Russia-Turkey agreement for terrorists and Turkey. This picture will continue over and over again during many many years.
