BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – A series of fierce clashes have broken out across the Idlib buffer zone as both the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and rebel forces continue to trade blows.

According to a military source in the government stronghold of Mhardeh, the Syrian Arab Army and rebel forces are currently clashing at least four different areas along the Idlib buffer zone.

The source added that the most intense clashes are taking place at the eastern part of the Idlib buffer zone.

Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army managed to foil an infiltration attempt by the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-‘Izza in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

This failed infiltration attempt by the Islamist rebels resulted in a powerful response from the Syrian Arab Army troops that are currently positioned along the Idlib buffer zone.

In the next few weeks, the Syrian Arab Army is expected to kickoff a new offensive in southeast Idlib; this operation will focus on clearing the towns near the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
