BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new attack in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Sunday, targeting a number of areas controlled by both Jaysh Al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
Led by their 4th Division and Republican Guard units, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by launching several missiles towards Jaysh Al-Izza’s positions near the Al-Massasneh checkpoint.
Following the attack on the Al-Massasneh checkpoint, the Syrian Arab Army began targeting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions at the town of Al-Jisat.
This attack by the Syrian Arab Army on Al-Jisat was in retaliation for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s strikes on the government-held towns in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Saturday.
The Syrian Arab Army would also target several sites belonging to Jaysh Al-Izza in the towns of Kafr Zita and Al-Latamnah.
These Syrian Army attacks on Jaysh Al-Izza’s positions have become more prevalent since the latter has been weakened by the lack of supplies to their forces from several foreign entities.
