BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – Earlier this week, the jihadist rebels launched a big offensive at the Abu Dhuhour front of Idlib, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at two different axes.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Turkestan Islamic Party, the jihadist offensive got off to a good start, as their forces were able to capture the town of Ajaz near Sinjar.

However, the jihadist offensive would be short-lived after Syrian Arab Army reinforcements poured into the Abu Dhuhour front to help launch a swift counter-attack to retake their lost territory.

The Syrian Army would recapture Ajaz and several checkpoints they lost to the jihadists, while also inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy forces.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Army killed over 20 jihadist rebels at the Abu Dhuhour front, forcing the latter to retreat from the two axes.

While the Syrian Army has not resumed their operations at the Abu Dhuhour front, they have decided to begin the reconstruction of the strategic military airport.

The military airport is expected to be used by both the Syrian and Russian air forces.
