BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have launched a counter-offensive in southern Idlib this evening after suffering some losses at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) at the Ta’manah front.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the jihadist rebels began their counter-assault by launching a suicide attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the southern axis of Ta’manah.

According to a military source in the nearby Hama Governorate, the jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Army’s defenses shortly after the suicide attack; this resulted in a fierce firefight that is still ongoing at this time.

Earlier in the day, the Syrian Arab Army was able to enter the southern part of Ta’manah after breaking through the enemy’s first line of defense.

Prior to this advance, the Syrian Arab Army had captured a number of sites from the militants, including the Ta’manah Farms and the town of Khuwayn Al-Kabir.

The Syrian Army is hoping to capture Ta’manah and Khuwayn in a bid to secure the eastern flank of Khan Sheikhoun.
