BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels were not able to catch a break on Wednesday as they found themselves sandwiched between two separate forces that were both looking to inflict damage on their defenses.

Led by their Republican Guard units, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began their assault on northern Hama today by launching a large barrage of surface-to-surface missiles and artillery shells.

According to a military source in nearby Mhardeh, the Syrian Arab Army managed to kill several members of the Turkish-backed Al-Izza Army, while also destroying a number of trenches around the town of Al-Latamnah.

The Syrian Arab Army’s attack was reportedly carried out in response to Jaysh Al-Izza’s infiltration attempt last night.

Jaysh Al-Izza has repeatedly attempted to bypass the Syrian Army’s defenses in northern Hama so that they could plant explosives along the government roads.

Lo correcto sería que el ejercito Sirio avance y recupere territorios perdidos ante los terroristas.

These Turk proxies need to be eliminated. Lost count of all their attacks. May their end be near.
