BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new attack east of Kafr Naboudeh on Tuesday in a bid to secure the eastern part of the town.
Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began their assault by storming the key hilltop of Tal Sakher, which is located between Al-Hobeit and Kafr Naboudeh.
According to a military source, the Syrian Army is seeking to capture Tal Sakher to prevent any future attacks by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham on Kafr Naboudeh.
At the same time, the source said Turkey informed their allied rebel forces that Russia will not halt their assault on northwestern Syria. Ankara reportedly told their allied rebel forces that they will provide them with new weapons to fend off the attack.
The source added that the Syrian Army offensive is still limited at this point, with the primary objective being the security of the neighboring Latakia Governorate.
