HAMA, SYRIA (5:40 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) launched a new offensive in the eastern countryside of Hama on Monday night, targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) held village of Al-Sathiyat.

According to local reports from the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been able to forestall the jihadist advance thus far; however, the battle is far from over, as Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham prepare for their second attack.

A report from the Hama Military Airport confirmed that no airstrikes have been launched at Al-Sathiyat, which means that the jihadist rebels were likely unsuccessful in their attempt to capture the village’s surrounding checkpoints.

Al-Sathiyat is located in eastern Hama and directly west of the large city of Al-Salamiyah.

@leithfadel Jihadis are like rats, there’s always more where it came from. Only a nuclear bomb could wipe them out.

ROFL again : Cl2 is dichlore! If used as combat gas, it’s called Bertholite but not very effective at all for this, it’s mostly used to disinfect swimming pools as it’s cheaper than Sodium hypochlorite, LOL

=> a cloth imbibed with liquid bicarbonate or even urine is enough to not breath chlorine! Swimming goggles are more than enough to protect your eyes!
