BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is rolling through the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate after seizing the key town of Al-Ta’manah from the jihadist rebels.
Backed by the Russian Air Force, the Syrian Army was able to advance north of recently captured Al-Ta’manah and establish control over the hilltops that overlook the other side of the town.
According to a military report from the area, the Syrian Army was able to capture the hilltops of Tal Sidi Ja’afar and Tal Turki after a short battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Rouse the Believers.
With this latest advance, the Syrian Army has managed to secure the northeastern sector of Khan Sheikhoun and northwestern axis of Al-Ta’manah.
The Syrian Army will now shift their attention to the towns located north of these hilltops; this includes Tahtaya (north of Al-Ta’manah) and Al-Hish (north of Khan Sheikhoun).
