BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack on southeast Idlib this afternoon after the jihadist rebels carried out an assault near the Abu Dhuhour Airport.

According to a military source in nearby Hama, the Syrian Arab Army heavily targeted the jihadist-held trenches inside the towns of Al-Taman’ah, Jarjanaz, and Al-Tah.

The source said the Syrian Arab Army used a large number of surface-to-surface missiles and artillery shells to pepper the jihadist trenches and military posts in southeast Idlib.

The jihadist rebels reportedly responded to this attack by firing several artillery shells towards the government-held towns in the Abu Dhuhour countryside.

This latest confrontation between the Syrian Arab Army and jihadist rebels comes just 24 hours after the former reopened the Abu Dhuhour Crossing in southeast Idlib.
