BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out a new assault against the Turkish-backed rebels that are currently active inside the designated demilitarized zone in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate today.

According to a military communique from Hama, the Syrian Arab Army unleashed a large barrage of artillery shells and surface-to-surface missiles towards the defenses of Jaysh Al-Izza near the key town of Morek.

The communique said the Syrian Arab Army scored several direct hits on Jaysh Al-Izza’s defenses, killing and wounding several Islamist rebels in the process.

Furthermore, the Syrian Arab Army carried out concentrated strikes on the Jaysh Al-Izza’s positions inside their northern Hama strongholds of Kafr Zita and Al-Latamnah.

The Syrian military claimed their forces managed to kill a number of Jaysh Al-Izza’s field commanders that were positioned inside of Kafr Zita and Al-Latamnah.

These attacks by the Syrian Arab Army on Wednesday were launched in retaliation for the overnight strikes by the Islamist rebels in northern Hama.

Less roaches to go. The sooner the infestation ends, the better.
Thus, in such cases, it’d be better to have SAA boots with gunship choppers support storming the area just after the artillery barrage ends, thus not letting roaches re-infest.
