BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful offensive in northwestern Hama on Saturday that targeted the strategic hilltop of Tal Malah and the nearby town of Jibeen.

At the start of the offensive, the Syrian Arab Army was able to score a swift advance at Tal Malah after the Russian and Syrian air forces hammered the hilltop with relentless airstrikes.

However, the Syria Army’s success would not last for long, as a swift counter-attack by the jihadist rebels would force the government troops to withdraw west in order to avoid suffering more casualties.

According to a field source, at least five soldiers were captured during the attack and 17 soldiers were killed. Another 15 soldiers were also wounded, the source added.

This offensive at Tal Malah was aimed at reopening the imperative road that links the two Christian towns of Al-Sqaylabiyeh and Mhardeh.

As long as this road remains closed, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies from Jaysh Al-Izza and the National Liberation Front have the ability wreak havoc on these towns in northwestern Hama.

La ofensiva también debe darse en otras frentes para que los terroristas distribuyan sus mercenarios en otros lugares y una vez mas la in-eficiencia de la fuerza aérea al para los bombardeos y la falta de reacción inmediata.,

This article didn’t say how many Jihadists casualties in this battle for Tal Malah and Jibeen, when I read “real Syrian source” (not Al Masdar), they are saying dozens of Jihadists were killed just in Tal Malah…

If Syria sides with the SDF and their allies (Israel, Saudi Arabia), you should say good bye to occupied Golan province and 1/3 of Syrian territories.

Who are the worst enemy of the Syrian Arab Republic moron ? Turkey and their allies are occupying less than 10 % of syrian territory… SDF and their allies are occupying 1/3 of Syrian territory + the occupied Syrian Golan. So make your decision the FAKE syrian !

They need the help of their trues allies which are Hezbollah, Iraq shiites, shiites militias, Iranian backed troops or eventually Iranian army, they are 1000 times more stronger than the little people of kurds, who are now the biggest allies of Israel and Saudi Arabia.

If Syria sides with the kurds, they could say bye bye to occupied Syrian Golan and 1/3 of Syrian territory. Get it the Troll ?

Shut up the troll ! Erdogane is a member of NATO and still one of the biggest ally of US and the West, same with the kurds, so you have to take a decision and stop lying yourself. Siding with the kurds is a same thing to siding with Merdogane ! Human = Hypocrite.

Agreed, over 80% Army of Dictaor Assad persished and defected .

Sure, mostly Shitty Terrorists groups & Iranian dying for Criminal Dictaror Asaad but RUSSIAN NOT.

Russian Are there only Testing and selling weapons to Assads Enemies instead die for Criminal Dictator.

Danny just makes things up and thats enough for him. something like 90% of those dying or fighting under assads army are syrian not foreign whereas HTS and others are probably a quarter to half foreign depending on the group. If you hate foreign terrorists you shouldnt be supporting HTS (which makes you a criminal depending on the country).

Iford,
its reaity, big portion of Assddi Army have been killed and perished by hands of The Islamic State and dozens hostile groups involved in syrian conflict. Another big portion was defected as well, left Assad heavily dependent of Foriegn Terrorist too survive.

Before saying anything you need to make some honest research . Find out Even the tiger force is not a force but umbrella of foriegn terrorist groups, mostly iranian radical shittys.

And i dont Support FSA or HTS shiit.
