BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – The Syrian military launched a new attack this afternoon to retake the abandoned battalion base in the eastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

Backed by Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) and the Russian Air Force, the Syrian Republican Guard began their attack on Thursday by storming the abandoned battalion base’s eastern perimeter.

According to an army source near the front-lines, the Republican Guard and Liwaa Al-Quds are currently trying to crack the defenses of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, while their allies from the Russian Air Force heavily target the jihadist supply line to the base.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army launched a similar attack at the abandoned battalion base; however, they were later forced to withdraw after the jihadist rebels foiled their advance.
