BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) thwarted a big attack by the jihadist rebels in the southern countryside of the Idlib province on Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced.

According to the Russian Ministry’s statement, the Syrian Arab Army was able to kill a large number of fighters from Jabhat Al-Nusra (a reference to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham) after they attempted to bypass the government defenses.

“Jabhat al-Nusra gangs have simultaneously attacked positions of government troops near Abu-Duhur and Abu-Sharjah settlements,” the Reconciliation Center’s head Lt. Gen. Sergei Solomatin said.

Solomatin added that the terrorists had “penetrated the Syrian army’s defense at a depth of up to 1.5 kilometers [0.9 miles] but were then stopped by the fire [of the Syrian army] and pushed back beyond the contact line.”

“The militant attack near the Abu-Sharjah settlement was thwarted by the fire of the units of the Syrian Armed Forces. Having suffered losses, terrorists withdrew to their original positions,” Solomatin said.
