BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Free Syrian Army’s Jaysh Al-Izza faction has issued a call for the general mobilization of rebel forces in northwestern Syria after suffering heavy losses as a result of the recent Russian airstrikes.

According to a Syrian military source in the Hama Governorate, Jaysh Al-Izza reportedly suffered a large number of casualties in the last week after Russian jets struck their positions along the Hama-Idlib axis.

The general mobilization of rebel forces in northwestern Syria is greatly needed for Jaysh Al-Izza as they are limited in the number of fighters they have available at their front-lines with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Much like the pro-government forces in towns like Mhardeh and Suqaylabiyeh, the majority of the fighters in Jaysh Al-Izza are locals from Kafr Zita, Al-Latamnah, and other villages and towns in the Hama and Idlib governorates.

However, Jaysh Al-Izza may be out of luck, as many of the rebel fighters in northwestern Syria are currently deployed near the front-lines with the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Jaysh Al-Izza will likely have to settle for aid from jihadist groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, who are already in control of most of the Idlib Governorate.

These warlords would have their country destroyed before they lose any power or money from all their criminal actives. Civilians in opposition held territory need to muster the courage to revolt as these losers do not have their backs or best interests at heart.
