BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has recently sent more reinforcements to the front-lines in northwestern Hama following a string of jihadist attacks on the towns north of Kafr Naboudeh.

According to a field source in the government stronghold of Mhardeh, the Syrian Army has heavily reinforced the front-lines around the town of Qasabiyah.

Over the last 72 hours, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their Turkish-backed allies have made two attempts to retake Qasabiyah; however, all of their attacks have been repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces.

The jihadist rebels have suffered heavy losses in these attempts, but it seems they are committed to retaking Qasabiyah despite the high number of casualties.

Qasabiyah is located at the southwestern slope of the Al-Zawiya Mountains; it was one of the first towns in southwestern Idlib that the Syrian Arab Army captured earlier this month.
