Over the last three weeks, the conglomerate of Islamist factions “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) has conducted a brutal siege of the predominately Shi’i towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya; this siege has been used by the aforementioned Islamist group as a bargaining chip to alleviate the pressure applied on their  embattled comrades in the resort-city of Al-Zabadani (Rif Dimashq Governorate).

While Iran and Turkey have worked behind the scenes to facilitate the ceasefire meetings between the Syrian Army/Hezbollah and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the aforementioned Islamist group would later violate the terms of this agreement after they declared the trade-off as “unfair” and “unfair.”

Infuriated over the Islamist rebel groups insistency that the Syrian Army/Hezbollah meet the demands of the Islamist rebels, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Central Command issued an order to the SAA soldiers at the Homs Governorate town of Al-Wa’er to obstruct the flow of all supplies to the militants inside this district.

With Al-Wa’er cutoff from supplies, the Syrian Arab Army has violated the terms of the temporary ceasefire at this town, leaving the reconciliation committees back to square one with the Islamist rebels and the Syrian Arab Army.

The Islamist rebels of Al-Wa’er relied on this supply line to maintain their assets; without it, the Islamist rebels may not be able to hold out for much longer.
