BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – A new jihadist offensive in northwestern Hama has caught the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) off guard as the latter has lost a key area between the towns of Al-Sqaylabiyeh and Mhardeh.

According to a military source in Mhardeh, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham stormed the small town of Jibeen and nearby hilltop of Tal Malah this evening in a bid to cut off the government supply line between the two towns.

Following a short battle, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham managed to capture Jibeen from the Syrian Arab Army, while also reaching the key hilltop of Tal Malah.

As a result of this jihadist attack this evening, the Syrian Arab Army was forced to close the main road from Mhardeh to Al-Sqaylabiyeh.

Intense clashes are now ongoing at Tal Malah as the jihadists attempt to push further west towards the main government lines in northwestern Hama.

War tactic:
Liberate the town, identify town point. move back (get out of town) and wait, let the enemy come in again, storm the town again and target the town points.
the rocky terrain hard to liberate. the only option set the trap.

Not only jihadist but also other groups and forces also killing Assadi thugs.

Now Criminal Dictator Asaad will bomb civilians, kill own people with barrel cluster and barrel bomb then blame Israel as usual.

You can’t kill everyone. You can attack only poor oppressed citizens inside them homes school and hospitals.

This is the Reason AQ, HTS, Moderate Rebels, Extrmist, Terrorists, LIS etc etc all groups killing Bashar Assad thugs all over the Syria… Only thing you can do is to Bury 100 more Assadi thugs and beg Irani mulla to send more chicks to die for Criminal Dictator in Syria.
