BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels captured another town in northwestern Hama this evening after launching a big offensive along the southwestern flank of their Hama pocket.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the militants managed to capture the town of Kafr Houd after advancing the from the key hilltop of Tal Malah in northwestern Hama.

In addition to capturing Kafr Houd and Tal Malah, the jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels have also taken control of Jibeen, which was the first site seized by the militants tonight.

As a result of these advances, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has suffered more than 20 casualties, including a number of dead at Tal Malah.

The jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels have also forced the Syrian Arab Army to close the main road that links the two Christian towns of Mhardeh and Al-Sqaylabiyeh.

A military source in Mhardeh told Al-Masdar that they have sent reinforcements to this front, but they have kept the majority of the local forces like the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and National Defense Forces (NDF) in Mhardeh and Al-Sqaylabiyeh.
