BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack inside the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate tonight.
Backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Arab Army fired a barrage of missiles and artillery shells towards the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza.
According to a military communique from Hama, the Syrian Arab Army specifically targeted the Al-Dahrouj Farms and small town of Al-Alaywi, which are both controlled by the jihadist rebels.
Both sides are now engaged in a fierce exchange of hostilities, with the jihadist rebels targeting the government positions near their stronghold of Mhardeh.
The Syrian Arab Army has recently intensified their attacks in the Hama Governorate, following an attempted advance by the jihadist rebels two weeks ago.
