BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham are involved in the deadliest battle of the month in northwestern Hama.

What began as a successful month for the Syrian Arab Army has since turned in a blood bath with all warring parties trading heavy offensives along the Hama-Idlib axis.

The death from this week’s battles has already exceeded over 100 dead, as a surprise Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham offensive has resulted in little map changes and heavy losses.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the jihadist rebels suffered over 120 casualties during their offensive on Thursday night.

A source from the Syrian military was more conservative with their numbers, as they claimed the jihadist death toll was estimated between 60-70.

The source added that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) lost 39 soldiers during the battles on Thursday and Friday.

The majority of the Syrian Army’s dead were reported on Thursday night when Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham broke through their lines at the small town of Jibeen.

As of now, the jihadist rebels are in control of two out of the three areas they targeted on Thursday night; however, the Syrian Arab Army is working to retake these sites in order to secure the region north of Mhardeh.

How long can the jihadists maintain these causalities. They know they have to get back areas lost at any cost or they will be completely over run. The more they lose now the quicker they will collapse later at a high cost . They will not accept reconciliation with Syria so must all be destroyed completely. However there will be an unfortunate cost too Syrian troops.

Well, they already had to take “troops” from Northern Syria to be able to deal with SAA offensive.
It’s not without reasons I recommand SAA should also go offensive in the north : they obviously can’t fight on two fronts while, with most of Syria having been liberated from jihadis, SAA has enough personnel to do so.

We realise that these people ? that comment like this do so as a result of necrophila with goats so no point in trying to make sense with them as their activity precludes any possibility of rational objective thought.
