BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:35 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a surprise attack near the Turkish-Latakia border, Sunday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near the town of Rabi’yah.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s attack proved successful in the beginning, as their forces were able to capture a few points in the Turkmen Mountains.

However, the Al-Qaeda linked group’s success would be short-lived once Syrian Arab Army reinforcements arrived from nearby Rabi’yah this afternoon.

The Syrian Army reversed all of the jihadist gains and retaliated by firing several artillery shells towards the strategic town of Kabbani in the Kurdish Mountains.

According to a military source, the Syrian Army lost 7 soldiers during the jihadist attack, prompting their high command to file a grievance with the countries overlooking the de-escalation agreement.

War & Peace

De-escalation zones unless they are also honored by the rebels it makes sense for SAA also to honor it. There is no sanctity for this agreement and it might be very well cancelled and let SAA handle these areas same as in Mayadeen & Dier Ez Zorr and how they just eliminated the Daesh.

In any case in coming months & years there won’t be peace in all provinces of Syria even after the exit of Daesh unless the elements of Al Qaeda / HTS / Nusra FSA groups are eliminated.
