BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham were able to beat back another powerful attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) at the strategic town of Al-Rahjan in northeast Hama.
Led by the Qalamoun Shield forces of the 3rd Division, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by storming the surrounding hilltop and farms of Al-Rahjan.
The Syrian Army would manage to take control of Al-Rahjan Hill and its corresponding farms after a breaking through Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s front-lines.
Once these sites were captured, the Syrian Army entered Al-Rahjan from its southern axis; however, this advance would be short-lived as the jihadist rebels mounted an important counter-attack.
Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham would manage to recapture all of the territory they lost and restore control over Al-Rahjan.
