BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have launched a counter-offensive in the southwestern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate after losing several areas to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) over the past 72 hours.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), the jihadist rebels began their attack on Sunday in typical fashion, as they sent a suicide bomber towards the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses west of Kafr Halab.

According to a military source in the area, the jihadist rebels then stormed the Syrian Army’s positions in a bid to overwhelm the troops near the Idlib-Aleppo border axis.

The source said intense clashes are ongoing at the moment, with only a minor advance made by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies from the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF).

The last jihadist counter-offensive took place on Friday, when their forces attempted to reclaim territory near the Regiment 46 Base; this attack would end in disaster, as many militants were killed and four vehicles were destroyed or captured.

Clearly game over yet theses reprobates are obsessed with bloodlust and can not get their fill.

Como ya sabe emplea la misma practica durante las contraofensivas, el ejercito Sirio debe estar preparado junto con la fuerza aérea.
