The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jund Al-Aqsa” – backed by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Turkmen – launched a large-scale offensive inside the Al-Ghaab Plains on Monday morning that targeted the only villages remaining under the control of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the Hama-Idlib border.

Not long after attacking the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses in Khirbat Al-Naqous, Jund Al-Aqsa imposed full control over the village, which forced the government forces to withdraw to the nearby town of Haqoura.

Following the capture of Khirbat Al-Naqous, Jund Al-Aqsa began their assault on the nearby town of Haqoura, resulting in another flurry of clashes with the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF).

According to a military source at the government stronghold of Joureen, Jund Al-Aqsa and their allies have entered Haqoura, but they have not yet captured it from the Syrian Armed Forces.

If reinforcements do not arrive soon to the Al-Ghaab Plains, the Syrian Armed Forces will lose Haqoura to the Jihadists of Jund Al-Aqsa.
