BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:18 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has kicked-off a new offensive against jihadist militants of the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate) in northeast Hama province with the aim of reaching western Idlib province.

According to military sources, vanguard formations of the Syrian Army have commenced a major offensive action in that last few hours northwest of the garrison town of Ithriyah.

Reports say that the Syrian Army has so far liberated the town of Jibb Abyad and is shooting for the strategic Abu Duhur military airport in western Idlib province which was captured by rebel forces many years ago.

It appears that the Syrian Army is taking advantage of Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham’s commitment to fighting ISIS in the region.

Updates to follow.
