Fresh off a disappointing three weeks in the northern countryside of the Al-Ghaab Plains, the Syrian Armed Forces launched a surprising offensive on Tuesday morning to recapture a number of towns and sites that were seized by the conglomerate of Al-Qaeda factions “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest).

The Syrian Armed Forces did not sit back for too long, however; instead, the latter conducted a powerful assault from their frontlines at the town of Joureen, where they were able to overpower the militants from Jaysh Al-Fateh’s largest factions – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – on Tuesday morning.

Not long after they began their offensive, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), the 87th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division, Mouqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Liwaa Assoud Al-Jabal (Lions of the Mountain Brigade) – stormed the towns of Khirbat Naqous, Al-Ziyarah, and Al-Mansoura, capturing them after brief clashes with the Jaysh Al-Fateh factions.

Following the capture of those three towns, the Syrian Armed Forces – led by the Cheetah Forces (Tiger Forces Brigade) – pushed south towards the town of Al-Misheek, the strategic hilltop at Tal Wassit and the Grain Silos, where they would capture these sites within two hours of their original assault.

The Syrian Armed Forces would then break-off: the Tiger Forces and the SSNP would push north towards Qarqur and the 87th Brigade, NDF, and the Lions of the Mountain Brigade would push south towards Qahira.

Once again, the Syrian Armed Forces found themselves on the move, reaching the southern axis of Qarqur before noon on Tuesday; however, despite the success, they have not captured Qarqur, Qahira, and the Zayzoun Thermal Station

Before the day ended on Tuesday, the Islamist rebel forces attempted to recapture the town of Al-Misheek; but, a source confirmed that Jaysh Al-Fateh does not have control of this town, despite claims by rebel social media activists.
