BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:25 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a new offensive in the southeastern countryside of Hama last night, targeting the western axis of the strategic city of Al-Salamiyah.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham surprised the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) with a powerful attack at midnight; this resulted in a fierce battle that ultimately led to the latter retreating from several points near Al-Salamiyah.

According to Al-Masdar’s Majd Fahd, reinforcements from the National Defense Forces have arrived to Al-Salamiyah this morning to help drive back the jihadist rebels that infiltrated the western axis of Al-Salamiyah.

Fahd added that the primary battle is taking place in the Al-Satahiyat area, which is located at the western axis of Al-Salamiyah; this part of the district has long been contested by the jihadist rebels.

Russia had warned just one day ago that if this happens they would obliterate the terrorists. Where is the Russian Air Force? Hezbollah and Iran need to take immediate action by themselves to help the Syrian Army to crush this invasion and eliminate the terrorists that have infiltrated.

SAA has high ground, and complete positional advantage from Mount Taqsis, which not only overlooks Taqsis, but completely outflanks the road enemy has to take to move in to attack Salmiyah area, like they did, again. Why saa has not taken Taqsis to prevent zerg attacks on Salamiyah is one thing, but to have zero clue that enemy is sneaking by under your nose is truly difficult to explain, especially when knowing that militants will do all in their power to prevent the “safe-zone” nonsense from allowing saa to re-deploy to fight dash.
