DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:45 P.M.) – Two days after jihadi groups blitzed the government positions in northern Hama countryside, seizing several villages and towns, the Syrian Army has re-grouped forces and began a partial counter-offensive.

Government troop – backed by heavy Syrian and Russian airstrikes – managed to recapture Kawkab village located directly to the east of Suran.

Huge reinforcements poured the frontlines of northern Hama as the Nusra-led assault posed a serious threat to the provincial capital and its operational airbase.

Pro-rebel sources confirmed that militants who have been evacuated from insurgent-held pockets outside Damascus – such as Darayya, Qudsaya and al-Hama – account for the large number of fighters involved in this attack.

Meanwhile, the hardline militiamen continue to Mahardah, Syria’s largest Christian city, with mortar shells and homegrown missiles.

Russian SU-25 fighter jets conducted nonstop airstrikes on the jihadi outposts around Kawkab, Ma’ardis, Suran, Taibat al-Imam and Al-Lataminah. Syrian attack helicopters have also effectively participated in the battles.

Every single year Al Nusra, Jabhat Fatah Al Sham, HTS, and whatever they call themselves next week attempt a Hama Offensive and every single year they get kicked back. They always take Suran and surrounding villages until the SAA regroups and then they lose everything they had and then some. When will they learn?

Maybe it’s time to consider doing a little more than repelling but chasing them like rabid dogs…

All these f*****g pricks everywhere I looked doing the exact f*****g thing over and over and over and over again, thinking : This time, it’s gonna be different! No, no, no please!

“Russian SU-25 fighter jets conducted nonstop airstrikes”

Esta ofensiva de parte de los mercenarios es producto de trasladar hombres de zonas liberadas a Idlib.
El gobierno Sirio para las próximas ofensivas debe exterminar terroristas sin contemplaciones.
La prioridad del gobierno debe ser cerrar la frontera con Turquía para que no ingresen armas.
El servicio de inteligencia debe ubicar fabrica de armas caseras y municiones, meter bombas de mayor poder destructivo para acabar.

But these transfer of terrorists is having a negative impact on the war. Why not bomb them once transfer is completed since they turn around to open up other front.

I hope opposition forces hold their ground.
