BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a surprise offensive in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate, today, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the small village of Abu-Dali.

HTS managed to capture some points at the start of their offensive; however, their advance was ultimately forestalled once they attempted to enter Abu Dali village earlier this afternoon.

In order to aid the SAA units at Abu Dali, the National Defense Forces (NDF) sent several fighters to this front in order to strengthen the lines and retake the lost points in this rural area.

During the attack, HTS lost its field commander of this operation, Abu Sana – he was killed alongside several of his combatants.

Abu Dali village is located near an important crossing point that used by both the Syrian government and rebel forces to conduct trade in the province.
