Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Fails To Overrun Syrian Army Positions In Northern Hama

In a new violation of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement, a unit of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) [the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria] attempted to attack several positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northern Hama countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The unit of HTS advanced from the opposition-held town of al-Lataminah towards positions of the SAA in order to launch a hit and run attack. However, the SAA detected and targeted it.

“The army targeted the infiltrating terrorists with the suitable weapons, and heavy losses were inflicted upon the terrorist groups in the personnel and equipment,” the SANA’s reporter in Hama said.

According to Syrian and Lebanese sources, the SAA and its allies are preparing to launch a large-scale military operation against the remaining militants in northwestern Syria in response to the repeated violations of the deconfliction agreement. The supposed operation could be launched before the end of this year.

    Any other sensible [impossible] people that found themselves in the same position that HTS is in wouldn’t do what they’re doing. They’d be sitting back and consolidating their forces, trying to make new allies, and desperately trying their hardest not to provoke the SAA into a major conflict until they were ready for it.
    But look at what’s happening here in Idlib, the exact opposite, does that mean that every single one of them is as dumb as an ox, possibly, but it could also mean something else.
