BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a powerful offensive on Monday to capture several villages and towns
along the Hama-Idlib axis.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza, the jihadist rebels managed to capture several areas in northern Hama, forcing the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to send a large number of reinforcements to this front in order to drive back the enemy.

Among the areas lost to the jihadist rebels were three villages south of the Idlib Governorate border; they were identified as Umm Khazim, Umm Turaykiyah, and Baleel.

Since losing these villages, the Syrian Army has managed to recapture Baleel and Umm Khazim, leaving only Umm Turaykiyah under jihadist control.

According to a military source in Hama, the jihadist rebels lost several combatants during this risky offensive , including a large number of militants from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

On Wednesday alone, the Syrian Army reported that six Jaysh Al-Izza and ten HTS militants were killed during the fierce clashes in northern Hama.

The Syrian Army is now working to retake Umm Turaykiyah from the jihadist forces.
