BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a powerful assault in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate, today, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the key town of ‘Atshan.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s assault would prove successful, as their forces managed to seize two towns from the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF).

According to HTS’ official media wing, their forces seized the towns of Al-Baleel and Umm Turaykiyeh after a fierce battle with the government units in northern Hama on Monday.

A source from the Syrian Army told Al-Masdar News this evening that their forces were unable to maintain their ground at these towns because their soldiers were gassed by the swarming HTS and Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants.

The total number of soldiers that were exposed to the chemicals is unknown.

Typical of cowards and terrorists, having to use unconventional advantages to achieve what they would not otherwise achieve.
Let’s wait to see the Syrian and its ally Russia’s retibution to that cowardly act.
There will be no doubt that the beginning of the end of the terrorists of the HTS is closer than ever and much more for its chemical performance today.

Basically, all these conventions are pure nonsense. Use everything you have at your disposal. Particularly stupid are the conventions relating to POW and parachutes – they favor the attacker. After all, the attacking nations have created them, to protect themselves during conquest.
Only one convention would be worth it – in one sentence: a soldier who has embarked on conquest has no right, kill him by sight, without prisoners.

This only values for regular armies and for both sides. You can’t also use hollow-point bullets AKA Dum-Dum like the cops or hunters do… In fact, FMJ bullets are more made to wound than to kill, but, guess what? Wounded soldiers are a MUCH bigger pain in the a*s of enemy than dead ones! These conventions were made to minimise death toll. You should learn about WW1. Example : the memorial of a single battle that killed more in a few months than the US Civil War. Chemical weapons were widely used, you know… : http://verdun-meuse.fr/images/pages/NNFleury.JPG Here’s inside the building… Read more »

Donald Trump, You are my President and I want you to pay attention here. There has been gas used, and it was NOT ASSAD, so do all of us a favor and keep your finger off the “Cruise Missle Attack” Button. Ya Ya, its NOT funny, but since you have not apologized for the last time you fell for a FalseFlag Gas attack, you are more likely to do it again. Better yet, apologize for making the mistake and shooting ‘Cruise Missles’ at the Syrians. Then fire the SOB that advised You to do it, because everybody makes mistakes, it… Read more »

Hey, Mr.Assad : give a call to Macron : he vowed to go after ANYONE using chemical weapons!
I’d be pleased my taxes being used to pound HTS!

The frontline wides. A mistake to do open the Idlib – Hama offensive wile is still open the battle to abukamal. SAA do everitime the same mistake.
