BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – Last Thursday, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies from the Turkestan Islamic Party and National Liberation Front launched a powerful offensive in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham began the offensive by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the town of Jalameh near the Idlib Governorate border.

The Syrian Army managed to beat back the jihadist rebels at Jalameh after a short battle on Thursday.

According to a Sputnik News Agency correspondent, “The Syrian Army forces were able to thwart an attempted attack by militants on the axis of the town of Jalameh in northwestern Hama on Thursday. Several armed groups from Turkestan and China attacked the positions of the Syrian Army on this axis, resulting in the loss of more than 25 gunmen, a tank and several vehicles armed machine guns.”

The Sputnik source said this was the third attack that week in the northwestern countryside of Hama.

At the same time, the Sputnik source aid that “the joint Syrian-Russian military aircraft carried out several air raids on the supply lines of the militants in the region, specifically in Zakat, Arbaeen, Al-Latamnah, Kafr Zita, Khan Sheikhoun, Hish, Termala, Riha, and Kafr Nabl.”

Since this offensive, the jihadist rebels have not launched any ground attacks against the Syrian Arab Army at this front.
