BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is quickly approaching the jihadist stronghold of Khan Sheikhoun after a series of gains across the Idlib Governorate.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army scored a new advance in the Idlib Governorate last, seizing the hilltop of Tal ‘Aas from the militants of Jaysh Al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

On Wednesday morning, the Tiger Forces continued their push eastward from Al-Hobeit, capturing two more towns from the militants.

According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army captured the small towns of Khirbat Murshid and Mantar after brief battle with the jihadist forces in southwestern Idlib.

As a result of these advances, the Syrian Arab Army is now within striking distance of Khan Sheikhoun’s western district.

However, before the Syrian Army attacks Khan Sheikhoun, they will likely attempt to close in on the militant defenses east of the town.

Oh I can see a massive gas cylinder being dropped by a borrowed B 52 being caught by a baby in the last working pram in Khan Sheikhoun immediately killing most of the people close by including one cat and three dogs and a pet mouse and inflicting serious problems on all the children at a nearby kindergarten. Fortunately and by the mercy of God ( not sure which one ) by the greatest luck imagined the White Helmets had a division of fully trained anti Assad gassing volunteers guarding multiple fire trucks with the only available water in the… Read more »

Yes, it is time to take over Khan Sheikhum and to close totally this small area of Idlib. Everybody is waiting Putin-Erdogan reaction.
