BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) offensive in northwestern Syria has been nothing short of bloody; however, in the end, they have managed to seize a large chunk of territory from the jihadist rebels.

Since they lost their offensive in early May, the Syrian Arab Army has captured approximately 200 square kilometers of territory between northwestern Hama and southwestern Idlib.

Among the areas captured by the Syrian Arab Army since early May are the towns of Kafr Naboudeh, Al-Qasabiyah, and Qal’at Al-Madiq.

While they have captured several areas from the jihadists, the Syrian Army has also lost some territory that they previously controlled before launching this offensive.

The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their Turkish-backed allies have seized approximately 35 square kilometers of territory in northwestern Hama this month.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza recently captured the key hilltop of Tal Malah and the nearby town of Jibeen.

The capture of Tal Malah has resulted in the closure of the main road between the government strongholds of Mhardeh and Sqaylabiyeh.

The Syrian Arab Army is now preparing to launch a big assault in the coming days to retake this large hilltop from the jihadist rebels and their allies.

El ejercito Sirio debe continuar con su ofensiva, ya basta de complacer al gobierno Turco de parte del gobierno Ruso…
La ofensiva debe ser mas agresivo desde el aire…

This is good, but it is not good enough. The whole area of Idlib must be on Syria hands. Terrorist and Turkish at Idlib must disappear for good. Russia must stop pleasing Erdogan at Idlib.
