BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued to launch heavy strikes on the jihadist rebel positions in northwestern Syria this week, as their troops repeatedly struck the militant defenses in Idlib, Hama, and Latakia.

According to a field report from the Latakia countryside, the Syrian Army launched several strikes on the jihadist defenses near the key town of Kabani, which has long been under the control of the Turkestan Islamic Party and their allied militants.

Following the attack on Kabani, the Syrian Arab Army launched several artillery shells and missiles towards the jihadist defenses in the Al-Ghaab Plain of Hama and Jabal Al-Zawiya region of southern Idlib.

These attacks appeared to concentrate on the positions of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party, who have previously attempted to infiltrate the government lines in southern Idlib and northwestern Hama.

This recent increase in SAA activity comes at a time when the army’s high command has deployed its elite 25th Special Mission Forces Division to southern Idlib.

A military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar that the southern Idlib offensive will be launched before the year-end and will focus on the Jabal Al-Zawiya and Al-Ghaab Plain regions, which currently have a large presence of jihadists.
