BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their strikes on the jihadist defenses in the southern countryside of Idlib last night.
Led by the 11th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army fired several surface-to-surface missiles at the jihadist positions in towns of Al-Taman’ah and Sukeek, causing a number of powerful explosions that could be heard overnight.
The Syrian Army managed to score several direct hits on the jihadist defenses before the latter finally responded in southern Idlib.
According to a military source in nearby Hama, the Syrian military was observing the jihadist movements in southern Idlib for several hours before launching their attack.
The Syrian Arab Army has recently stepped up their attacks along the Hama-Idlib axis in an effort to prevent the jihadist rebels from reinforcing their lines in the designated buffer zone.
With Turkey vowing to halt their advance into the Idlib province, the Syrian Arab Army is limited to launching missile and artillery strikes on the jihadist defenses.
