BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – For the first time since they halted their offensive in northwestern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is attempting to advance along the Idlib-Hama axis.

Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the town of Al-Qasabiyah this morning, which is located just north of Kafr Naboudeh.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army is attempting to build a larger buffer zone around Kafr Naboudeh to protect from future jihadist attacks.

No advance has been reported by the Syrian Arab Army as of yet.

While attempting to advance north may give them some cushion from this axis, they will still need to capture Tal Sakher to the east in order to secure Kafr Naboudeh completely.

Since they halted their offensive in northwestern Syria a week ago, the Syrian Army has come under attack on a number of occasions at Kafr Naboudeh.

The Syrian Army has managed to repel these jihadist attacks on Kafr Naboudeh, but they have proven to be costly for all parties involved.

Halting offensive… to do what ? Offensive must not stop, and this is well understood by Russia during WWII, until total victory is achieved (Germany and Japan defeated in WWII).
