BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful assault in the southeastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, today, targeting the jihadist-held town of Al-Ramleh.

Backed by heavy artillery, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division and Republican Guard managed to enter the town from its eastern flank this afternoon, following a fierce battle with the jihadist forces.

However, the Syrian Army’s success would stop there, as they soon found themselves outnumbered and nearly surrounded inside of Al-Ramleh.

According to preliminary reports, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham captured eight soldiers and killed a half dozen others during the short-lived attack today.

The Syrian Army will likely make another attempt to capture this town in the coming days, as they continue their push towards the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airport in east Idlib.

Well all the publicity about Abu Dhuhour just gives the jihadis time to dig in and lay their plans.
Why does the Syrian Army announce its plans with such fanfare?
