BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies are on the move again this evening, as their forces attempt to advance further into southeastern Idlib.

Backed by Liwaa Al-Quds, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Corps and 25th Special Mission Forces (formerly Tiger Forces) began their attack this evening by storming the jihadist defenses north of Zarzour.

According to a preliminary report from southeast Idlib, the Syrian Army is currently engaged in a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham at the southern axis of Freiji.

No advance has been reported as of yet; however, earlier in the day, the Syrian Arab Army was able to capture several sites, including the town of Umm Khalakhil.

The Syrian Arab Army is currently trying to capture the last remaining towns under the control of the jihadist rebels south of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.

Ma’arat Al-Nu’man is the next major town along the Damascus-Aleppo Highway that is under militant control.

For once I hope this time they SAA doesn’t halt their offensive once the enemy’s front line defenses have been overrun. The hesitation once they have the ability to overwhelm unfortified towns and cities has cost them too much already.

If it was so simple they would do it. Unfortunately, things are not just black and white especially in Idlib. There are so many factors there for success. Syrian army cannot just kill everyone there who is fighting. We’re talking about thousands and thousands of people. After all Syrian army is not jihadists who kill everyone and everybody. In my opinion they are doing great. Slow but steady they will get Idlib back again…
