BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a new attack inside the southeastern part of the Idlib province, yesterday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the small town of Khuwayn.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the jihadist rebels attempted last night to sneak past the defenses of the Tiger Forces near the front-lines at the town of Khuwayn.

However, the jihadist rebels were spotted by the Tiger Forces near the town of Khuwayn before they could reach government lines, a Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

According to the military source, the Tiger Forces opened fire on the encroaching jihadists, resulting in a series of intense clashes that lasted for several hours last night.

The source said that the Syrian Arab Army was able to foil the jihadist attack and force them to withdraw to the towns of Khuwayn and Abu ‘Umar in the southeastern countryside of Idlib.

No information was released regarding the total number of casualties sustained by either side during last night’s battle.

This latest attack by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham comes just 24 hours after the latter attempted to infiltrate the government’s positions in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate.
