BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels are struggling to hold onto Kafr Naboudeh this afternoon, despite capturing the town earlier this morning.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began a major counter-offensive against the jihadist rebels to reclaim Kafr Naboudeh shortly after losing the town. According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army stormed Kafr Naboudeh from two different flanks in a bid to overwhelm the jihadists.

The Syrian Arab Army has managed to reenter the town after breaking through the weak jihadist lines at the western axis of Kafr Naboudeh. They are now working to retake the last areas under the control of the jihadist rebels.

The military source said the jihadist death toll from their offensive on Kafr Naboudeh has exceeded 80, with most of the casualties coming during the first six hours of their large scale operation. He would add that the Syrian Arab Army death toll is also rather high, with an early estimate between 30-40.

As of now, the Russian and Syrian air forces are hammering the jihadist rebel positions across the Idlib Governorate in order to prevent the latter from reinforcing their comrades around the Kafr Naboudeh front.

Likely US does not give a hoot about either side of this fight. Their ideal situation is a pyrrhic victory for SAA, one that leaves them depleted and exhausted. As for the islamists, US would like to say them crushed, as long as the civilians say put and Turkey will be humiliated.

Downvoters seem to think US cares about any party in the Syrian conflict other than, maybe, the kurds? Dream on couch popating naives. US main dream is a collective suïcide by all involved, which dream sees to be becoming reality.

Now is the time for SAA to start another two or three large assaults somewhere else. Near Latakia, Kabane and near Tadef. Saturate the islamists with assaults. That is, of course, if they have enough cracks military to execute those assaults.
