BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M.) – The second major jihadist assault is underway in northwestern Hama as the militants of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham attempt to capture the key town of Kafr Naboudeh.

According to a source near the front-lines, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is throwing everything they got at the Syrian Army’s defenses in Kafr Naboudeh. The source said the militants are trying to breach the Syrian Army’s eastern flank in a new bid to seize the town.

At the same time, the jihadists are also heavily shelling nearby Tal Hawash in order to weaken the Syrian Army’s defenses around the northwestern axis of the Hama Governorate.

Should the militants retake Kafr Naboudeh, this would be a major boost in morale for HTS and the National Liberation Front, as their previous losses have given them little to cheer about these past few weeks.

Unlike Qal’at Al-Madiq, the militants have the territorial advantage around Kafr Naboudeh because they control the key hilltop of Tal Sakher, which is located between the town and nearby Al-Hobeit.

The Syrian Army cannot secure Kafr Naboudeh without taking Tal Sakher in the future.

Almost all defeats of SAA have been caused by a structural disregard by SAA of their flanks and rear. Jihadi counterattacks will be more effective when aimed at flanks and rear.
