DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:55 P.M.) – After storming Taibat Al-Imam from two axes this morning, the elite assault troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) swept through the town, while engaging in heavy firefights with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS).

As the Tiger Forces, alongside two brigades of the 4th division, broke through the first jihadist defensive line, HTS launched a suicide bomber at the advancing government units as mines and sniper nests proved unable to repel the overwhelming SAA thrust.

The SVBIED (suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device) was nevertheless blown apart before reaching its designated target as hundreds of seasoned Syrian troops spearheaded a massive counter-offensive, killing dozens of HTS militants and expelling the Al-Qaeda linked faction from Taibat Al-Imam by noon.

Consequently, the SAA has scored a major strategic victory in rural Hama. Taibat Al-Imam has not been under government control since rebel forces overran it back in August, 2016.

On Monday, the Tiger Forces entered Taibat Al-Imam for the first time this year but were temporarily repelled in what proved to be initial probing attacks, exploring poorly defended points, followed by heavy Russian aerial bombardment.

Fantastic news.

The worry now is that the US and terrorist allies will fabricate more Sarin gas lies in order to attack Syria in a ‘ Humanitarian and Democratic way ‘ to support the favoured Head Choppers of the West who massacred women and children at a Terrorist checkpoint last week.

American Democratic Values have been responsible for millions of deaths since 1945, usually in poor countries that have resources.
