BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels have had another rough day in northwest Syria after their former jihadist ally launched a major assault across the Idlib province on Tuesday.

Taking advantage of the weak rebel defenses, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham stormed several areas across the Idlib Governorate, today, seizing up many towns and villages that were previously under the control of the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front.

According to local reports, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has captured over 15 towns and villages from the National Liberation Front, including Tarmala, Naqir, Zaqim, Al-Al-Qasabiyah, Al-Hamidiyah, and Al-Koulin.

Some reports have indicated that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has captured the strategic Jabal Shashabo region along the Hama-Idlib axis; however, this remains unconfirmed at this time.

It appears that at this juncture in the battle, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is attempting to capture the entire Al-Ghaab Plain and southern countryside of Idlib from the National Liberation Front.
