BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels thew everything they had at the key town of Kafr Naboudeh in northwestern Hama these last 12 hours.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the militants suffered heavy losses during their first major assault on Kafr Naboudeh. While they managed to enter the eastern district, they were ultimately forced to retreat after sustaining a significant number of casualties within their ranks.

Following their first attack, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies regrouped to launch a second assault to capture Kafr Naboudeh. This second assault would prove successful as they were able to push the Syrian Army outside the town for the first time since they lost Kafr Naboudeh.

A source in northwestern Hama said the Syrian Army has since launched a counter-attack and reestablished a presence inside the town. The source adds that the militants have sacrificed and lost many fighters over the last 12 hours.

If the Syrian Army is successful in retaking Kafr Naboudeh, they will have to capture the large hilltop Tal Sakher. Tal Sakher overlooks the eastern part of Kafr Naboudeh; if it remains under militant control, the town cannot be secured.

Aah, I doubt the Sultan is willing to have these back in Turkey where they’ll surely create problems. Now what could be interesting would be us doing a few strike aircraft bombings on Assad’s installations which are already out of use, so we’ll make the roaches believe they tricked us with their chemical weapons false flag, so they’ll restart hoping they can win : hey, if understand it’s hopeless, they will flee and do lone wolf shït everywhere… And a cruise missile launch is too expensive… GBU-10 LGB are cheap and let a 30m diameter crater behind… BTW, the 2017… Read more »

What was the point for SAA to take a town that is largely undefensible and allow opponents to keep a a strategic hill? Stupid unless intended.
