BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:50 A.M.) – At approximately 10:00 A.M. (Damascus Time), the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive in the Idlib Governorate, striking the jihadist defenses at several axes near the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was able to capture the Al-Izzo Hill and its corresponding farm, following a swift assault against the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
The Syrian Army also launched a powerful attack inside the city of Abu Dhuhour in a bid to expel the jihadist rebels from the western district.
According to a military report from that front, the Syrian Army made a small advance last night; however, they are still engaged in heavy firefights in the western district, as they try to breakthrough Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s defenses.
If they succeed in taking control of Abu Dhuhour city, they will be able to secure the western axis of the Abu Dhuhour Airport for the first time since they recaptured this imperative military installation.
