BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a new assault on the besieged Shiite towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya tonight, the National Defense Forces (NDF) reported.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham began their assault by storming the eastern axis of Kafraya from their positions at the nearby Barouma Farms.

This jihadist assault on Kafraya was followed up with a big attack on two NDF axes near the neighboring town of Al-Fou’aa.

No gains have been reported thus far; however, intense clashes are ongoing at all three axes.

Tonight’s attack by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham marks the third time this week that they have attacked these government-held towns located near the provincial capital of the Idlib Governorate.

Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya have remained under the government’s control for the entire war, despite repeated attempts from the jihadist rebels to infiltrate and capture these towns.

These two towns are protected by thousands of local NDF fighters and Hezbollah soldiers that were parachuted into this government enclave in 2015.

La fuerza aérea debe intervenir, luego el ejercito Sirio debe marchar hacia ellos para liberarlos como lo hizo con Deir-Ezzor
