Illustrated in the yellow is the ongoing battle along the Hama-Idlib axis in northwestern Syria.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has reached the strategic Zawiya Mountain this afternoon following their latest advance along the Hama-Idlib axis.

According to a military source in Hama city, the Syrian Arab Army has captured the entire Huwayz area, including all three towns that are located at the southwestern slope of the Zawiya Mountain.

The Syrian Army was able to capture the Huwayz area after breaking through Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s main line of defense near the northern axis of Al-Hamra.

With the entire Huwayz area under their control, the Syrian Army’s high command will have a tough decision to make regarding whether or not they want to make push into the Zawiya Mountain region.

The rugged terrain, Turkish military, and large presence of militants is a cause for concern for the Syrian Arab Army’s high command; however, due to the region’s importance, they may attempt to push into the Zawiya Mountain to test the enemy’s defenses.

Tis time to push on I think if the SAA logistic train is well supplied.

Bravo SAA and all their valiant allies.

El ejercito tiene continuar con la ofensiva con la ayuda de la fuerza aérea, de lo contrario si detienen, los mercenarios del gobierno Turco podrían reorganizarse y conseguir mas provisiones y logística para volver con la contraofensiva.
La idea es no dar tiempo a los terroristas.

They will have to have a go at taking the mountain cause they will be firing at them from the top …it might be so easy for the jihadi groups and fighter’s looking over them and taken them out..

Agreed! Also, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. You don’t want those head chopper and liver-eating jihadis launching sneak attacks behind your lines from the high ground
