BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have taken advantage of the Turkish military’s strikes on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in southwest Aleppo to launch a big counter-offensive near Kafr Halab.
The jihadists began their counter-offensive in typical fashion, as they sent a suicide bomber towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions west of Kafr Halab.
Following the suicide attack, the jihadists and their Turkish-backed allies from the National Liberation Front (NLF) stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses in a bid to reclaim the territories they lost to the latter this week.
Thus far, no advances have been reported at this front.
This latest counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels comes just hours after the Syrian Arab Army captured several areas inside southwestern Aleppo.
Prior to this counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Army was approaching the strategic Regiment 46 Base, which has long been under the control of the militants.
