BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a heavy attack across southern Idlib, southwestern Aleppo, and northern Hama last night.

Using a mixture of surface-to-surface missiles and artillery shells, the Syrian Arab Army began their assault by launching a number of projectiles towards Jaysh Al-Izza’s positions near the Turkish observation post in Morek.

The Syrian Arab Army would then follow up this attack by launching simultaneous strikes on the jihadist positions in the southwestern Aleppo town of Khan Al-Assal and southern idlib town of Khan Sheikhoun.

This prompted a heavy response from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, who also fired a number of missiles and artillery shells towards the government’s positions in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Over the last few weeks, the fighting in northwestern Syria has intensified to the point that the Russian and Turkish armed forces have had to intervene in order to stop the spread of violence.

However, a source from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar that the likelihood of decreased hostilities in northwestern Syria is very slim because their high command believes Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their jihadist allies are seeking to expand in southern Idlib and northern Hama.
