Mhardeh, Hama (3:45 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) launched a large-scale offensive on Monday to capture the strategic city of Mhardeh in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Jund Al-Aqsa and their jihadist allies have already managed to capture three villages in northern Hama today, while advancing west towards the large town of Helfaya, which is located on the outskirts of Mhardeh.

According to preliminary reports from the northern Hama countryside, the jihadist rebels  seized half of Helfaya after a violent battle with the government-backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP).

Helfaya village is located directly east of Mhardeh and was once under the control of the jihadist rebels in 2014; however, it was eventually recaptured during a government counter-offensive.

The city of Mhardeh is considered Syria’s most densely populated Christian city in Syria; it is also home to tens of thousands of displaced Syrians from the Hama Governorate.

Last time the jihadist rebels attempted to capture Mhardeh, they lost several fighters trying to the enter the eastern part of the city.

Yes. Those NDF weaklings are insufficient. Unload the napalm. The Turkey move into Syria is responsible for this, with the FSA involved in this move.

Hey. If Iran that is a Muslim country was not defending Syria, then Syrian Christians, Alawis ( a branch of Shiite Muslims), Twelver Shiite Muslims and logical Sunni Muslims ( non extreme Muslims) were swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. There are 73 sects in Islam. So revise what you have already said.

By the way, if you still do not like to revise your sentence, there would be no problem. But do not forget USA, France, UK, Germany, … (as Christian countries) are supporting these Muslim groups. So you can say ” I f**k these f*****g Muslims and those f*****g Christians who are supporting these f*****g Muslims.” It looks much better 🙂 .
