BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a counter-offensive to retake the key hilltop of Tal Al-Nar near Khan Sheikhoun on Sunday.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the jihadist rebels began their counter-offensive by sending a suicide bomber towards the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at Tal Al-Nar.

Following the suicide attack at Tal Al-Nar, the jihadist rebels began storming the hilltop in a bid to overrun the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses.

However, despite the intensity of the attack, the jihadist rebels were unable to crack the Syrian Army’s lines at Tal Al-Nar, resulting in heavy losses for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army managed to kill and wound over 20 jihadist rebels during the battle, while also destroying several militant vehicles.

As a result of this failure, the jihadist rebels found themselves on the defensive once again, as the Syrian Arab Army began their long-awaited attack on the city of Khan Sheikhoun.

Tal Al-Nar overlooks much of the northwestern part of Khan Sheikhoun, which is why the militants wanted to retake it from the Syrian Arab Army.

You throw peanuts you get monkeys!! HTS has already lost 100s of its best Jihadis in recent weeks in & around Hama & Idlib and unable to bring more good experienced talent and putting large number of inexperienced TAKE BEER shouting Jihadis is not really helping. I read one very funny comment which literally made me ROFL which was posted in SYRIATUBE 5 to 6 years ago by one commentator who said “1 Jihadi gets Shot & falls down and immediately a big group of so many Jihadis all rush and crowd around him and together they leave the front… Read more »

Siempre me gustaría escuchar el fracaso de las contraofensivas por parte de los terroristas.
