Syrian Army rocket forces engage militant targets in Damascus (Source: Syrian Digital Media).

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) unleashed a powerful assault against the jihadist rebels in southern Idlib, today, after another volatile night around the demilitarized zone.

Led by their 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the jihadist defenses along the Idlib-Hama axis, scoring several direct hits on the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham trenches in this area.

Among the areas targeted by the Syrian Arab Army were the jihadist trenches near the towns of Khuwayn, Sukeek, Khan Sheikhoun, and Al-Taman’ah.

In response to the Syrian Arab Army’s big assault in southern Idlib, the jihadist rebels fired several missiles towards the government positions south of Khuwayn.

The situation around the demilitarized zone remains very tense, despite attempts by Turkey and Russia to mediate an immediate ceasefire between all parties in the area.

The Syrian Arab Army is pushing to launch a new military operation; however, they are being cautioned by the Russian Reconciliation Center, who wants to give Turkey time to force the jihadists to withdraw from the area.
