DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:15 P.M.) – Earlier this week, Al-Qaeda’s offensive in northern Hama got off to bad start largely due to a strong government defensive line but also the intervention by seasoned Russian personnel.

Brand new footage shows Russian military police, known to be stationed around the Christian city of Mhardeh, in active combat against Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS).

The footage initially shows Russian choppers flying above the battlefield but later goes on to show Russian troops shelling and targeting jihadist vehicles with guided missiles while seasoned Russian snipers pick away at HTS militants:

At the moment, much of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) manpower is tied up in the ‘Big Dawn’ offensive against ISIS in eastern Syria. Consequently, the Russian Armed Forces and Kremlin-aligned PMC’s (private military company) are aiding government forces in holding their lines against hostile belligerents in western Syria.

With the HTS offensive completely foiled just days after it began, SAA commanders have sent reinforcements to northern Hama where a government counter-offensive is looming.

Meanwhile, a credible report on Thursday evening suggested Islamic State commanders had agreed to evacuate ISIS fighters from their last villages in eastern Hama. This in turn will allow the SAA to divert more troops into the northern Hama frontline against HTS.
