BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a heavy retaliatory assault across the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Thursday, targeting several areas controlled by Jaysh Al-Izza.
According to a military report, the Syrian Arab Army heavily targeted the trenches and bases of Jaysh Al-Izza around the town of Tal Sakhar in northern Hama.
The Syrian Army followed up this attack by launching a heavy barrage of missiles and artillery shells towards Jaysh Al-Izza’s positions inside the towns of Al-Latamnah, Kafr Zita, Arabeen, Hasraya, and Zakat.
In addition to their attack on northern Hama, the Syrian Arab Army also targeted the National Liberation Front’s positions in the Al-Ghaab Plain and Shashabo Mountain area.
The Syrian Army’s assault was launched in response to the heavy attack by Jaysh Al-Izza on the Christian city of Mhardeh.
