BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a new offensive in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Friday.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies attempted to crack the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the northern axis of Huwayz, today, resulting in a fierce battle for two hours.

In the video below, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces can be seen beating back the jihadist rebels after a short battle north of Qal’at Al-Madiq.

@Assad, late May 2019, it was reported that Umm Sayyaf had been cooperating with the Kurdish intelligence & CIA in the hunt for al-Baghdadi. Umm Sayyaf, sentenced to death in Iraq exposed fugitive’s secrets. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/may/31/isis-wife-reveals-role-in-helping-cia-hunt-for-baghdadi
Martin Chulov interviewed her.

p.s. Even if they hunt him. CIA are criminal.
