BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a powerful attack on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions in southwestern Idlib last night.

Using the cover of night, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the eastern and northeastern axes of Qasabiyah.

For nearly two hours, the Syrian Arab Army and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham clashed at Qasabiyah last night; however, the latter was unable to crack the government’s lines.

According to a military source in northern Hama, the Syrian Arab Army was able to repel the jihadist attack, while also killing and wounding several militants in the process.

The Syrian Arab Army then secured the area around Qasabiyah in order to prevent another attack from being carried out later that night.

Qasabiyah is a small town that is located at the southwestern slope of the Al-Zawiya Mountain.

The Syrian Arab Army maintains a presence in southwestern Idlib as a result of their control over Qasabiyah.
