Hama, Syria (8:05 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise) reportedly established full control over the key village of Taybat Al-Imam in the northern countryside of Hama on Tuesday evening.

According to a field report from the 11th Tank Division, the Syrian Armed Forces began to withdraw from Taybat Al-Imam after losing the Sawwan Checkpoint that was considered their last line of defense.

Taybat Al-Imam was originally captured by Jabhat Al-Nusra in mid-2014 after they seized the large town of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib; however, it was later recovered by the government forces during a large-scale counter-offensive.

With Taybat Al-Imam under Jund Al-Aqsa’s control, the government-controlled towns of Souran and Khattab are considered the next targets for the jihadist rebels.

Syria needs Houitis to fight against jihadist. Russians and Iranians are too weak. Syrian Army looks like Saudis army. No offense but it is all strange.

This sucks. Jihadists capture key points within two days, and are pushing further. It will take month or more to expel them.
