BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – Just one day after several failed attacks by the jihadist rebels in northwestern Hama, the Syrian Arab Army took the initiative and stormed the key hilltop of Tal Malah.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army began the day by storming the Jaysh Al-Izza’s defenses at the western axis of Tal Malah and the nearby town of Jibeen.

Thus far, no advances have been reported by the Syrian Arab Army.

The primary goal of recapturing Tal Malah and Jibeen has to do with reopening the imperative roadway that links the two government strongholds of Mhardeh and Al-Sqaylabiyeh.

Earlier this month, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza launched a surprise attack on Tal Malah and Jibeen, resulting in the subsequent capture of these sites.

The militant assault on these sites caught the Syrian Army off guard as they were primarily concentrated on the Kafr Naboudeh front.

Why just one axis? That isn’t working. It has just been getting a lot of brave men killed.
The generals need to WTFU and attack from several directions at once; Tiger forces from one direction, 4th division from another and the 9th division from a 3rd. And employ the whole division, not just a couple brigades. That, along with fully committed air support, will get the job done and cost a lot fewer lives.

Looks like they have too many manpower… Maybe ex-rebels? 😉

La fuerza aérea debe estar presente, no hay civiles en la zona por tanto debe ser mas fácil arrasar con los terroristas.
