BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a counter-offensive in northwestern Hama this morning after losing several areas to the jihadist rebels overnight.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began the counter-offensive by launching a heavy attack on the town of Kafr Houd.

According to a source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army was able to retake Kafr Houd after a short battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

The source added that the jihadist rebels are not putting up much of a fight around Tal Malah, as they have mostly pulled back their troops after a successful attack last night.

Should the jihadist rebels lose all the territory they gained last night, their offensive would still be considered successful. The militants managed to kill over 30 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces, giving them a major morale boost after several setbacks in northwestern Hama.

  1. That is why offensive must not be stopped of halted. Of course, Russia-Syria-Hezbolah-Iran know that these terrorists have been supported (inteligence-weapons) by Israel-USA-NATO (turkey). So, there is not way for SAA to stop and to feel confortable.
