BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has reversed all of the militant gains from the joint Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham-Jaysh Al-Izza June offensive in northwestern Hama.
Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army began their counter-offensive by retaking the key hilltop of Tal Malah, which overlooks the main road between Mhardeh and Sqaylabiyeh.
According to a military source in northwestern Hama, the militants from Jaysh Al-Izza withdrew from the nearby town of Jibeen shortly after the Syrian Arab Army captured Tal Malah last night.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army entered Tal Malah this morning and managed to secure the entire town.
As a result of these advances, the Syrian Arab Army has reversed all of the militant advances and positioned themselves to reopen the main road between Mhardeh and Sqaylabiyeh.
