BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in the southeastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate, yesterday, capturing several sites from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-‘Izza.

Led by elements of the Tiger Forces and 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Army secured the area around Um Hariteen and Tal Al-Tawella after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels.

Following the Syrian Army assault, the jihadist rebels attempted to recover the territory they lost; however, it was too little too late, as HTS and Jaysh Al-‘Izza were forced to retreat further north.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Army killed more than 20 militants during the jihadist attack, including several members of Jaysh Al-‘izza.

Not long after repelling the attack, the Syrian Special Mission Units managed to slip behind enemy lines in southeast Idlib to capture four militants and their weapons before heading back to safety.

The Syrian Army is now approaching the strategic town of ‘Atshan, which is located just north of the Hama Governorate axis.
