BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began a new push to seize the town of Al-Huwayz along the Idlib-Hama axis.

Led by the Tiger Forces, with help from the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian military stormed the jihadist defenses north of Al-Hamra in a bid to reenter Al-Huwayz.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army is currently engaged in a heavy battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The Syrian Air Force is also launching airstrikes over the Idlib-Hama axis in order to help propel the ground troops in this region.

No advances have been made thus far.

Today’s attempted advance comes 24 hours after the Syrian Arab Army attempted to capture Al-Huwayz from the jihadist rebels.

The jihadist rebels were ultimately abel to repel the Syrian Armed Forces after the latter briefly entered the town.

The fighting is sucking in mercenaries from the north and east. Might this be the time to open a large new front in West Aleppo and around Al Bab?

Excellent idea! Just a matter of SAA resources and logistics.
