BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a counter-offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to recapture the town of Ma’ardes in northern Hama on Thursday.

However, the jihadist offensive did not go according to plan in Ma’ardes, as they suffered heavy casualties in their failed bid to retake the town from the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces.

According to a military source in northern Hama, the jihadist offensive lasted no more than two hours and ended after many of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s fighters were killed by the Tiger Forces around Ma’ardes.

The video footage above was captured by local activists, following the jihadist assault on the town.

Well, the place they used it, a network of underground tunnels/caves in a remote area, it perfect for this, thus, I wouldn’t be surprised if the “smallest” daisy cutter had been enough. the blast+vacuum effect in tunnels, according to the Venturi law, must be much more tremendous than in the open… I’d be curious to know about the aftermath.

It’s always a pleasure to learn that a jihadists’ offensive ended in a disaster : it’s all they deserve as having their asses kicked by all those these roaches hate : Jihad is the worst crime against humanity ever performed!
