BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a massive counter-assault in northwestern Hama this evening, targeting the key town of Kafr Naboudeh, which was captured by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) earlier in the day.
Using VBIEDs (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) under the cover of night, the jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in a bid to overwhelm them and reclaim Kafr Naboudeh.
According to a military source near the front-lines, the firefights are taking place at the northern axis of the Kafr Naboudeh and they involve the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army is involved in their most intense battle since they launched their offensive on Monday morning.
The jihadist rebels have already claimed that they have seized Kafr Naboudeh; however, the Syrian Army denies these claims.
