The Syrian Arab Army’s 106th Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – has secured the village of Ghaniyah in the Al-Ghaab Plains after fierce clashes with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Jaysh Al-Islam and Ajnad Al-Sham on Sunday afternoon.

The militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra were able to infiltrate into the village on Sunday morning, capturing the western checkpoint before the Republican Guard and their allies reversed the Islamist gains in Ghaniyah.

Part of their counter-attack, the 106th Brigade continued to press the militants at the western perimeter of the Al-Tanimiyah Checkpoint, securing the area and creating a larger buffer-zone to the west of the village that overlooks the strategic roadway used to resupply the Syrian Armed Forces in the Idlib Governorate.

In the southern part of the Al-Ghaab Plains, the militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra attempted to infiltrate into the village of Ash-Shariah; however, the attack was repelled by the National Defense Forces after intense firefights with Islamist groups in western part of the  Hama Governorate.

East of Highway 56, the SAA’s 106th Brigade recaptured the village of Hayleen located in the Hama Governorate, killing 29 militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jaysh Al-Islam on Sunday night.

Despite constant attacks by Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies at Qahira and Mansoura, the NDF and Republican Guard contingents have repelled all Islamist infiltration attempts into these villages located on Highway 56.
