On Saturday, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jaysh Al-Nasr, and Jaysh Al-Islam launched a wide-scale offensive at the strategic village of Al-Mughayr in northern Hama after alleging that the Syrian Armed Forces violated the countrywide ceasefire agreement.

The extremist rebel groups began their offensive by storming two important sites near Al-Mughayr, resulting in a fierce battle with the Syrian Arab Army’s 47th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP).

Following the battle at the Sawmill checkpoint and Tal Al-Sakhar, the extremist rebel groups attempted to enter Al-Mughayr, but were later repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces before they could make any significant advance.

With the assault on Al-Mughayr repelled, the Syrian Armed Forces launched a counter-assault to retake their lost territory from the extremist rebels.

The counter-assault began with the Syrian Air Defense firing a surface-to-surface missile at the rebel defenses, causing a huge explosion on Saturday afternoon.

 

The Syrian Armed Forces would then storm the imperative hilltop of Tal Al-Sakhar, where they were confronted by a large contingent of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Nasr fighters.

Moments later, the Syrian Armed Forces would recover Tal Al-Sakhar and then shift their focus to the Sawmill Checkpoint.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are attempting to recover this important checkpoint in the Al-Mughayr countryside; however, this site still remains under the control of the rebels.
