DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:50 P.M.) – Clashes in multiple fronts of north-west Hama countryside re-erupted after jihadi rebels announced a new offensive against the Syrian forces, duplicating a failed attack last month.

The attack was initiated with rebel groups shelling Army positions and checkpoints in Mughayr, Kernaz and Hamamiyat towns as well as south of Kafr Nabudeh town using artillery and homegrown rockets. No casualties reported.

The Syrian Army responded with targeting jihadists’ headquarters and supply routes with heavy MLRs and artillery strikes. The rebel bastions of Kafr Zita, Lataminah and Habit were strongly hit.

Recently, the Russian fighter jets have been overwhelmingly active in the area with hundreds of airstrikes that pummeled positions for the ultraconservative groups.

The attack, known beforehand by the Syrian government, comes nearly six weeks after the same groups waged a failed assault in the same area. Kernaz, the only town seized by militants during the offensive, was recaptured by the Syrian forces in less than 24 hours.

And now East Goutha is cleansed, Yarmouk and Qalamoon are falling…
Well; jihadist paradise will lack virgin goats, virgin prairie dogs will be needed, maybe virgin pigs and monkeys too…
