BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 A.M.) – The jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels launched a joint counter-offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate last night.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and National Liberation Front, the militants began their assault by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the eastern axis of Kafr Naboudeh.

A fierce battle would ensue between the warring parties, with the jihadists of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies briefly entering Kafr Naboudeh after overwhelming the Syrian Army’s eastern flank.

However, the militant success would be short lived as the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces quickly regrouped and drove back the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fighters and Turkish-backed rebels out of Kafr Naboudeh.

According to a military source near the battlefield, the Syrian Army killed scores of jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels, including a number of foreign combatants. The death toll is still unknown he said, but added that it is expected to be over 50 dead.

At the same time, the source said many soldiers were killed at the start of the battle, but the death toll for the Syrian Army is still unknown. The source said it could be as high as 30.

He would add that all militant claims of capturing the Tiger Forces commander Colonel Hassan Habib are false.

Colonel Habib later released a video denying his capture, adding that these claims are nothing more than psychological warfare.

A new attack has begun by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham; they are trying to renter the town at this time.

Good job SAA. Let’s make Erdogan eat his moustache, before he eats his birth-act.
