BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) increased their pressure on the jihadist rebels positioned along the Idlib-Hama axis this afternoon.

Backed by their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Arab Army began their assault by firing several missiles towards the Jaysh Al-Izza strongholds of Kafr Zita and Al-Lataminah in northern Hama.

The Syrian Army and their allies would also target Jaysh Al-Izza’s fortifications and movements around the town of Markabah.

According to a Syrian Army source in the area, their forces managed to destroy at least two trenches and one base that belonged to Jaysh Al-Izza.

At the same time, the Syrian Arab Army intensified their strikes on the jihadist-held towns of Umm Khakhaleel, Khuwayn, Tal Mari, and Tal Sheih.

The attack specifically targeted Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s forces that were working to raise new trenches and plant mines along the Hama-Idlib axis.

The Syrian Arab Army has been striking the Hama-Idib axis for the last five days, destroying several sites belonging to the jihadist rebels in the process.
