BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has captured more ground in the Aleppo Governorate this afternoon following the withdrawal of the jihadist groups from several areas near the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5).

According to a military source this afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s 25th Special Mission Forces Division (formerly Tiger Forces) captured at least three towns from the jihadist rebels after a short battle along the Aleppo-Idlib provincial axis.

The source said the Syrian Army captured the towns of Al-Zurbah, Al-Barqoum, and Al-Salihiyah from the jihadist rebels, giving their forces new positions along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway.

He would add that the Syrian Army is still on the move in southern Aleppo and should capture more territory from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and their allies in the coming hours.

The jihadist rebels have been in a marathon-like retreat from the Idlib and Aleppo governorates over the last three weeks, resulting in the loss of several important areas like Ma’arat Al-Nu’man and Saraqib.

The head choppers are running like they never gave civilians the chance to do. Run, cowards, the little Palestinian boy you killed had more courage in his little finger than you!

Spot on Karen. Jihadists are cowards and have abused the defenseless. They talk tough and when push comes to shove, they run. They can run all they want but they can not escape their just reward, eternal damnation. RIP all victims and peace to their families.

Why are they running away and not staying put in one place to fight & die become a MARTYR and claim the 72 Virgins? Doubts have started to creep in into these creeps about the truth on martyr & availability of the Virgins in the heavens or they now care less for it? Or they just want to say Fock Off to the Virgins? Cowards. So much bravado talk and when the real fight comes they run away. Iszlamic Jihadi Filthy Pigs.
