Hama, Syria (7:45 P.M.) – Jund Al-Aqsa and Ahrar Al-Sham began a massive assault on the village of Kawkab following the detonation of a VBIED.

The VBIED seems to have struck successfully as Syrian Army units emptied their positions and attempted to contain the situation in the vicinity of the village. Syrian and Russian warplanes are relentlessly striking jihadist positions and supply lines in northern Hama.

If they manage to fortify their positions in Kawkab, the Al-Qaeda franchise of Jund Al-Aqsa and its Islamist ally Ahrar Al-Sham are likely to turn their eyes to Ma’an where they committed a horrific massacre in 2014 against the village’s Allawite population.

So much for their momentum, soldiers and ammo being depleted. Disappointing. Where are all of those Darayya troops when you need them?

VIEDS is something new in modern warfare . If you see how big blast the create so the first line of defense disorganized . You can hold a position when VBIEDS are on your way . So its not easy to call this pathetic . This happened in Aleppo and the first offensive to Rakka

It is pathetic. In Deirr Er Zur no VIEDS were successful so far because all of them were eliminated well before they reached their destination. Kornet’s ATGM range is 4km. NDF is poorly trained.
