BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a new attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Saturday morning.

Backed by Jaysh Al-Izza, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham began their attack on Saturday by storming the town of Jalmeh from their positions at nearby Jibeen.

However, the jihadist attack on Jalmeh would ultimately fail, thanks in large part to the Syrian Arab Army’s strong defenses at the town’s western and northwestern flanks.

According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army knew of the jihadist attack before they began storming Jalmeh. The source said Syrian Army drones spotted a large militant gathering at the nearby town of Jibeen before the main jihadist attack began on Saturday.

He would add that the Syrian Army targeted the militants with heavy artillery and rocket fire as they approached Jalmeh, inflicting a number of casualties within the ranks of the jihadist forces.

This latest jihadist attack came just 48 hours after the Syrian Arab Army launched a counter-offensive to recover the town of Al-Hamamiyat from the militants.
