BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.)  – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a big counter-offensive in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Sunday, targeting the areas they lost to the jihadist rebels earlier in the week.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from their Russian partners, the Syrian Arab Army began their offensive by storming the jihadist defenses at the western axis of Tal Malah.

Following a series of intense clashes on Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army was forced to withdraw from the western axis of Tal Malah after sustaining a number of casualties.

Once the Syrian Arab Army withdrew from western Tal Malah, the Syrian and Russian air forces unleashed a massive assault on the large hilltop in a bid to weaken the jihadist resolve.

The Syrian and Russian air forces launched well over 20 airstrikes on Tal Malah, killing and wounding many jihadist rebels from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

Since then, the jihadist rebels have begun their own counter-offensive in northwestern Hama to capture the towns to the west of Tal Malah in northwestern Hama.

Time to use “banned” fuel-air cluster-bombs. Fire is the best when pest-control has to deal with cockroaches.

Media hiding the fact, since april over 400 Assadi supporter have died and now they withdrawing from fighting for Idlib without making any significant gain even with cost of over 400 lives. Now Assadis telling fake stories about opposition casualties and conducting Air Strikes in order to boost the moral of them terrified unexperienced soldiers. In other parts of Syria, Assadi supporters also continue to die. In East Syria ISIS alone has killed over 125 Assadi supporters since April while dozens more died by FSA and other hostile groups.

They’re not “Assadi supporter”, they’re Syrian REGULAR ARMY FIGHTING FOR ITS COUNTRY against the Turkish+terrorist invasion!
Mark my words, both Erdogan and the Bani-Thani will pay DEARLY for this, and by the hand of their own “allies” the deceived by supporting the same terrorists who also attacked USA+EU+Russia+India+… (the list is too long).

Make no mistake, Reprobate ErDOGran will burn in h**l. He played both sides against the middle and has burned the bridges. This clown is not as important as he thinks himself be. I hope his Jihaditrash makes a beeline to Turkistan.

Whatever the truth, SAA is being stretched as NDF is mostly worthless and SAA has only limited crack units. Morale is not that good. SAA urgenrly needs Assad to kiss up with the kurds and SDF. If he is not man enough to swallow his pride and make compromises, he is not man enough to rule during a civil war.

Can’t you see all Kurds, SDF, ISIS, LIS, NLF, AQ, HTS, JIZ and all other forces groups and Entities involved in Syrian War killng Assadi supporters wherever and whenever they get Chances. If Assad bow to any of them and beg for alliance they will surely say yes to achieve instant benifits comes with offer but due to Henious crimes against humanity and stiff oppositions from majority of Syrian people none will be proud to be friend with Criminal Dictator or able to provide substantial help. Last month over 500 Assadi dead, next month the number will be more then… Read more »

Danny, do u honestly think that a bearded jihadi replacing Assad would be a benefit to all Syrians ??? I’d rather have Assad any day than a bearded jihadI who is dictated by Saudi Arabia or Israel how to behave & sell oil cheaply to them. Kurds are already selling cheap oil to Israel, hence why Assad doesn’t want anything to do with them. ISIS has never touched Israel or vice versa..think about it.

Very obvious to anyone OZ. They already copted to mentoring white helmets and instructed them on chemical weapons attack. Helmets work hand in hand with Al-Qaeda,ISIS, FSA. Fake civil war. Fake war on Terror. Turkey / Israel same wings of the bird 🦅 the vulture.
