BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 P.M.) – The jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels have suffered heavy casualties over the last 72 hours, as their latest offensive in northwestern Hama has turned into a complete blood bath.

According to a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) field report, their troops have killed over 150 fighters from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the National Liberation Front, and Jaysh Al-Izza.

Among the 150 militants killed in northwestern Hama were three commanders from Jaysh Al-Izza. The commanders were identified by the group as the former Syrian National Team goalkeeper Abdel-Bassit Sarout, Yasser Al-Hilal, and Mohammad Khaled Al-Sabbagh.

While Jaysh Al-Izza has suffered a tremendous blow to their military command, it is Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham that has lost the most combatants since Thursday’s offensive.

A source from the Syrian military said more than half the militant casualties were members of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham; this includes a large number of foreign combatants as well.

In regards to the Syrian Arab Army’s casualties, they too have suffered a large number of losses in their ranks. The Syrian Army has lost at least 50 soldiers in the last 72 hours, with most of their casualties coming during the first hours of the jihadist offensive.

The battle in northwestern Hama is still ongoing at this time, as both warring parties trade offensives to regain territories they have lost in the last 72 hours.
