BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has begun a heavy assault on the town of Hamamiyat in northwestern Hama.
According to a military source in Hama city, the Syrian Army is hammering the jihadist positions at Hamamiyat as they prepare to storm this town in the next few hours.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army has moved in reinforcements to this area as they look to reverse all of the jihadist gains in northwestern Hama.
On Wednesday, the jihadist rebels, backed by Jaysh Al-Izza, launched a big assault in northwestern Hama from five axes.
The jihadist attack would prove successful as they were able to crack the Syrian Arab Army’s lines and impose full control over Hamamiyat.
In regards to the town of Kernaz, a source in the town told Al-Masdar that they still hold it, despite a claim from a soldier in nearby Sqaylabiyeh.
