BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The situation for the jihadist rebels in northwestern Hama and southwestern Idlib is progressively getting worse as they have lost a total of five towns on Monday.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army seized two more towns this afternoon following an intense battle with the jihadist rebels.

According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army took control of Al-Tobeh and Sheikh Idris after launching a swift attack from the Kafr Naboudeh area.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army has now secured the western axis of Kafr Naboudeh, leaving only the northern and eastern flanks left in danger.

The Syrian Arab Army will likely shift their attention to the key hilltop of Tal Sakher and the nearby town of Al-Hobeit as they work to fully seucure the northwestern axis of the Hama Governorate.

If they are successful, the Syrian Arab Army will only have a few sites left to capture in Hama before the entire governorate is under their control.

Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army captured three towns from the jihadist rebels along the Idlib-Hama axis; these included Tal Hawash, Hawash, and Al-Jabriyah.

Excellent the battle for Idlibistsan is long long overdue. Too many innocent people have been killed by the relentless salafi jihadist attacks. MSM still refers to the battle as “Regime v Rebels” the reality is the secular government v Wahhabism. This is the final battle of Secularism V Sharia when it comes to Syria.

While not a supporter of SAA, they are to be preferred over islamists. So, I hope they will take the whole of Idlib too.
