Hama, Syria (8:11 P.M.) – After several failed assaults on Ma’an and the neighboring Karah village, jihadists from the Jund Al-Aqsa terrorist group and their allied Free Syrian Army renewed their assault on the aforementioned villages.

Unfortunately for them, the local NDF and Syrian Army units were well-prepared for the assault. Three militant tanks and four armored vehicles were destroyed in the failed assault. Moreover, over 30 jihadists were killed while dozens more were injured.

Adding insult to injury, Syrian Army units managed to recapture Batish and the western neighborhood of Ma’ardasmnorth of Mt. Arbaeen. So far, this offensive has begun to prove real costly for the jihadists who are currently attempting to fortify the towns they seized almost a week ago.
