BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – April has been the cruelest month for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) this year, as they have lost nearly 80 soldiers since the end of the March.

The Syrian Arab Army hast lost most of their soldiers in central Syria, where the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) has managed to carry out several ambushes along the international highway between the desert cities of Palmyra and Al-Sukhneh.

The central Syria front has claimed 60 of the 79 soldiers that have been killed this month, a source from the military told Al-Masdar this morning.

Over the last 48 hours, dozens of Syrian soldiers have been killed near Palmyra as the Islamic State forces expelled the Syrian Arab Army and Palestinian-led Liwaa Al-Quds from the small desert town of Al-Kawm.

Meanwhile, in northwestern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army has come under heavy fire from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

Just last night alone, the jihadist group infiltrated the Syrian Army’s positions in the Aqrab area, killing at least a dozen soldiers before retreating back to the Rashideen 4 area in southwest Aleppo.

The Syrian Arab Army has even reported casualties in southern Syria this month as sleeper cells loyal to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) continue to wreak havoc on their positions in the Daraa and Al-Quneitra governorates.
