BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s offensive is not slowing down in northern Syria, despite the recent influx of Turkish troops in the northern countryside of Hama.

Backed by heavy artillery and airstrikes, the Syrian Army made their first push to capture the key town of Al-Hobeit in southwestern Idlib this evening.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Army is looking to capitalize on their recent advance in northern Hama by seizing the first strategic town in the Idlib Governorate that is out of their hands.

Tonight’s assault on Al-Hobeit is led by the elite Tiger Forces, who have been main Syrian military unit attacking the militants in northern Hama and southern Idlib.

It was originally believed that the Syrian military was going to capture Kafr Zita and Al-Latamnah first; however, with their recent success at the large hilltop of Tal Sakher, the army chose to make a push to capture Al-Hobeit from the joint forces of Jaysh Al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

And when the SAA finally captures the city they need to leave mop-up teams in place to clear out any jihadi cells and then remain in patrol to help local police. That would be to not worry about losing their gains to protect their rear as they move forward. They are going to have their hands full soon not just with jihadis but also the Turkish military.

Syrian Arab Army with RuAF are now going hammer & tongs after the Jihadis and with this intense attacks inside Hama from so many directions Jaish Al Izza is losing very badly it looks like the days of glory for Jaish Al Izza is over. They are decimated and don’t stand any chance to regroup & counter attack. Airforce is really eroding the Jihadi’s “a*s”-ets. Good going SAA & RUAF 😉 Keep it up and no mercy! Jihadis too showed no mercy for the captured SAA.

Muy pronto los observatorios estarán llenos de terroristas y Erdogan tendrá que llevarse a sus mercenarios mas atrás, lo cual no debe ser permitido, espero que la fuerza aérea actúe en el momento de la retirada aplastando a todos los mercenarios.
