DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:45 P.MP) – A coalition of jihadi groups has overrun the government forces in the northern countryside of Hama, making huge gains and posing a serious threat for the provincial capital

Led by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) – formerly known as Jabhet al-Nusra, the ultraconservative militants launched their full-scale offensive yesterday on several positions for the Syrian Army and local fighters.

The 24-hour battle has yielded well for the jihadists as they managed to take over several towns and villages including Soran and Khattab.

Hours earlier, the media wing of HTS reported that its fighters stormed Ma’ardis after a suicide bomber detonated his BVIED inside the village.

Scores of government troops – including officers – have been reported dead during the battles.

The insurgents expanded their assault and attacked the predominantly-Christian city of Mahardah, shelling it with mortar shells and homegrown rockets and cutting off the road linking it to the provincial capital.

Reports came in that jihadi rebels massacred up to 30 civilians – mostly women and children – in the Alawite-populated village of Majdal.

In May 2016, insurgents killed 19 civilians after capturing the predominantly-Alwaite village of al-Zara located in the western countryside of Homs.

How could they know that Erdogan resupplied them with heavy ammo?
Without there is no offensive!

They somehow got that. Their supply line goes through Turkey.

p.s. Erdogan is part of the peace deal. So tell how to know.

Jobar and Hama attacked to stop Tigers advance in east Aleppo, and prevent them nearing Tabqa. The enemy’s plan is for Damascus to order Tigers back into Hama and maybe set a trap to end the Tiger, flying around in his mini chopper.

El gobierno Sirio tiene necesidad de mas aviones para hacer frentes en varios lugares a la ves, cuando ataques de este tipo, los terroristas atacan como enjambre, entonces es muy fácil bombardear sin hacer daños colaterales.

Kardesh, as long as Erdogan supplies them with heavy ordnance in the idiotic assumption the changed their ideology and aims with their name.

BTW. The neo-Ottoman wants to kill all the Armenian and Assyrian Christians the Turk empire missed in the genocides starting 1895 and ending 1923. Tongue out.
