BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has begun storming the town of Hamamiyat in a bid to expel the jihadist rebels from the area.

A source from the Syrian military said the army began storming the town shortly after they unleashed a heavy barrage of artillery shells and missiles on the jihadist defenses in Hamamiyat.

Prior to storming the town, the Syrian Arab Army successfully fended off a jihadist attack on the key town of Kernaz, which is overlooked by Hamamiyat.

Should the Syrian Army fail to retake Hamamiyat, they will likely lose Kernaz to the jihadists as the latter currently controls the high ground.

Holding high ground can also be a disadvantage if the air force RuAF & SAF just concentrate along with the surface to surface missiles & artillery, now a days not much news on the usage of Golani rockets.
