BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 P.M.) – Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a counter-offensive this evening after losing the hilltop of Tal Sukayk in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

The jihadist group’s counter-offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began with a suicide attack carried out by a Turkish militant named Khaled Al-Turkish.

A powerful explosion could be seen at Tal Sukayk after the jihadist drove his vehicle into the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses.

The jihadist group’s official media wing released a video shortly after the attack, showing the powerful explosion at Tal Sukayk (link below):

According to a military source in the nearby Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army has been able to fend off the jihadist counter-offensive thus far; however, another attack is expected soon.

The video posted shows foreign-backed jihadis using that suicide bomber but not following through. And the video taping from afar seems to me that they are merely making a “statement”. That does not make for a counter-offensive especially as a later AMN report states that the SAA are still making progress in Idlib

Si podrían estar mas atentos a la vigilancia. estos cochebombas no funcionarian, he visto como los Kurdos revientan antes que lleguen los suicidas al destino, pero no parece lo mismo con el ejercito Sirio.

With Kurds, most of time, you saw embedded foreign militaries using Milan, Eryx or even Javelin ATGMs. During videos where ATGMs are used, I’ve many time heard French militaries speaking when Milan/Eryx were used. I’ve even seen an odd action of a capability that was not available in the time I served, IDK if it was a Milan or Eryx, but the missile missed and… did a brutal U-turn, coming back and hitting the SVBIED from behind! WOW!
