DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:15 A.M.) – In the aftermath of Monday’s jihadist counter-offensive, four battle videos were released by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) showing details of the attack:

The first video shows HTS, a jihadist group with close ties to Al-Qaeda, conducting a preliminary shelling of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in northeastern Hama:

Meanwhile, the FSA’s Jaish Al-Izza branch fired a US-manufactured TOW missile into the town of Zughba, striking the side armor of a SAA tank which immediately caught fire:

Minutes later, the same FSA group launched another guided missile strike from the exact same location, striking a 57 mm field gun belonging to the SAA:

Nearby, HTS belligerents also struck an SAA armored vehicle on the Shakushiyah frontier with a Fagot anti-tank missile on Monday:

Contrary to previous opposition offensives, Al-Qaeda and the FSA are working directly alongside one another, sharing the same command center in order to beef up their military capabilities. Thus far, joint jihadist forces have captured two towns and one village.

Overnight, the SAA began an offensive – heavily backed by Russian airstrikes – to reverse all jihadist gains although the outcome of the counter-insurgency operations is yet to reach a conclusion.
