Heavy clashes between Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces and militants reportedly broke out on in northwestern Hama and southwestern Idlib on Tuesday.

The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham attacked a number of towns in this region, with their primary concentration on Kafr Houd and Qasabiyah.

According to reports from this front, the militants suffered heavy losses during the attack. A source from the military said the Syrian Army destroyed seven vehicles belonging to the jihadist rebels, including two tanks.

The source added that the jihadists lost an estimated between 25 and 35 fighters during the attack, including a whole unit from the northern Aleppo town of Azaz.

Despite Tuesday’s attack by the jihadists, the situation in northwestern Syria has been relatively calm, with the occasional shelling exchange between the warring parties.
