BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – Fierce clashes broke out this afternoon in the southern countryside of the Idlib province after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new attack near the demilitarized zone.

Led by their 4th Division, alongside elements of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful attack on the jihadist positions at the large hilltop of Tal Sukeek and its corresponding town.

Following the attack on Tal Sukeek, the Syrian Arab Army expanded their assault to the Abu Dhuhour countryside, where they once again hammered the positions of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham near the military airport.

The jihadist rebels responded to the Syrian Arab Army’s attack by launching a powerful counter-assault using artillery shells and missiles.

According to a military source in the area, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham reportedly targeted the Syrian military’s positions south of the demilitarized zone; this prompted anothe fierce exchange.

The clashes are still ongoing at this time, with both sides trading blocks along the Hama-Idlib axis.
