BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – For the second day in a row, the jihadist rebels have attacked a Christian town near the front-lines in the Idlib Governorate.

According to a military source in the northern Hama, the jihadist rebels and their allies from Jaysh Al-Izza launched several artillery shells and missiles towards the Christian town of Mhardeh, prompting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to respond with a barrage of their own projectiles towards the militant defenses.

Mhardeh, which is predominately populated Antiochian Orthodox Christians, has a large presence of Russian military personnel, who are actively advising the Syrian Army units in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Like Sqaylabiyeh in northwestern Hama, Mhardeh is home to one of the largest units from the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF).

Prior to the arrival of the Tiger Forces and several other Syrian Army units, the Mhardeh NDF and the 11th Tank Division were the only units protecting northern Hama.

Keep lying, keep the propaganda. The terrorist Syrian regime killed 1 million of its own people, formed ISIS and Al Nusra to support his sectarian army. The Syrian terrorist regime destroyed churches in Homs and Maaloula and killed hundreds of Christian. The sectarian regime brought hundreds of extremists from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Iran to slaughter the kids from throats as an act of revenge for a guy who died 1440 years ago. The Syrian regime doesn’t protect minorities, the Syrian regime kills and still killing whoever opposes his terrorism. Jihadists are the right hand of their supporter and creator,… Read more »

In fact, it’s the alliance between Qatar and Turkey (both are led by the infamous Muslim Brotherhood) which started this mess because Bashar refused the transit of a gas pipeline. Saudis started to interfere later, and for a different reason : not hot a pinsher movement from the ayatoilets, especially with the Muslim Brotherhood that was also in control in Egypt+Sudan… Some serious changes in KSA have happened since Bandar and MBN have bin fired, MBS has adopted the MBZ line : no funding/backing of extremists. It was high time they opted for changes. US have some responsibility, but they’re… Read more »

@”Syrian” : AFAIK, Assad is not into sectarianism, in fact, secular Syria pi$$es off the Muslim-Brotherhood as much as the ayatoilets, so, in some terms, Assad’s enemies are sectarianists imported from everywhere by the vile snakes in the Muslim-Brotherhood, transiting mostly by Turkey, now, it’s clear that some of Assad’s allies are as much shitlamists than the Qatari/Turkish proxies. In fact, there is a secret agreement between Erdogan + Khamenei : Turkey takes this : While the south of Syria would be left to Iran for Shia sectaranisation, Lebanese style… And Assad would be the sücker… Unfortunately for the bigots,… Read more »
