BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recaptured the key town of Kafr Naboudeh this week after withdrawing from it as a result of the jihadist counter-offensive.

According to a military source, the Russian Air Force played an imperative role in the Syrian Army’s success on Sunday, as their fighter jets completely wiped out Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s fortifications inside Kafr Naboudeh.

With Kafr Naboudeh under their control, the Syrian Army will now make a push towards the Idlib province. In doing so, the Syrian Army will have to capture the large hilltop of Tal Sakher, which overlooks Kafr Naboudeh from its eastern flank.

If they are able to capture Tal Sakher, the Syrian Army can finally push to capture the town of Al-Hobeit. The aforementioned town has long been under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and its proximity to the strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun makes its capture all the more important.

Since Saturday evening, the Syrian and Russian air forces have been peppering Khan Sheikhoun with airstrikes every few hours. These airstrikes have reportedly caused significant damage to HTS’ defenses in this part of the Idlib province.

In regards to Khan Sheikhoun, its location along the Idlib-Hama Highway makes its capture a high priority for the Syrian Army’s high command.
