On May 10, terrorists of the al-Qaeda-affiliated wa-Harid al-Mu’minin operations room violated the ceasefire in Greater Idlib by carrying a surprise attack on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions in northwest Hama.

The terrorists stormed several army positions around the town of Tanjarah in the early morning. Eventually, most of the town and its surroundings fell into the terrorists’ hands.

The SAA is currently carrying out a counter-attack to secure Tanjarah. Several positions in the town’s vicinity have been recaptured. However, heavy clashes are still ongoing, with the army shelling the nearby villages and towns of al-Ankawi, al-Qahirah, Qulaydin, Kafr Uwayd, Mawzarah, Kansafrah and Ayn al-Arus.

In an official statement, wa-Harid al-Mu’minin said the attack was a response to “violations” by the SAA. The al-Qaeda operations room was one of the forces which rejected the ceasefire brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), 15 army service members and 7 Jihadists of wa-Harid al-Mu’minin have been killed in Tanjarah clashes, thus far.

Recently, Wa-Harid al-Mu’minin’s terrorists stepped up their attacks. A day earlier, the terrorists launched four rockets at the Russian Hmeimim Air Base in southern Lattakia. The attack resulted in no casualties or equipment.

The situation in northwestern Hama could escalate further in the upcoming few hours. The SAA and its allies will likely respond to these violations by resuming airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in the region.
