On December 17, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces repelled a surprise attack of the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) group Jaysh al-Izza and al-Qaeda on its positions in the northern Hama countryside, according to Syrian pro-government sources. The SAA reportedly recaptured all the checkpoints and positions it lost in the areas of Zilaqiat and Zilen.

The SAA killed four fighters of Jaysh al-Izza, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria. Pro-government sources added that several fighters of Jaysh al-Izza were also captured by the SAA during the clashes in Zilaqiat and Zilen.

Moreover, Syrian opposition activists revealed that the SAA killed “Salah Eddine Al-Checheni”, a high-ranked commander of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar during the clashes in northern Hama. This confirms that al-Qaeda-affilated militants participated in the Jaysh al-Izza attack.

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the FSA and al-Qaeda-affiliated groups will likely to launch similar attacks in the upcoming days. However, such attacks will likely not allow the militants to achieve any significant gains.

        You roar like a Lion, but all that comes out is a meouww from a pussy (cat). Such comments show you up to be the true moron you are, unable to see past the end of your very flat nose. Did it EVER occur to you, just how easily you and your brothers are being played ? You are nothing less than mercenaries, because you let yourself be paid to do the dirty work of the Zionist/CIA/Israeli/Whabbiast filth. You and your brothers who have died in their 100’s of thousands under a rain of Russian and ZIO-American bombs……………which is just what they want, so while you go off to die, Shlomo can stay at home and watch you die on You-tube or the News, whilst cursing you in the Talmud. How stupid are you, who goes off to die, and leaves his family, his children without a father ? How stupid are you who believes the Saudi’s, the murderous Whabbist Imams who have twisted the words of the Prophet to enslave you. Your raggedy mercenaries are younger now, because we killed your forefathers in Chechnia, in Grozny, all over, and we cut off the heads of all the jihadi’s and lined our streets with them. Our children urinated and defecated on them and we all laughed. We even played football with them, and we never took prisoners. Yes, send your raggedy morons to us, because all that awaits them in death, defeat and cold steel…………………how stupid are you.

    I am thinking that there will be a attack in northern Latakia province by The first Coastal division on the SAA. And also remember They are the Tiger forces of rebels because they have a good Selection of well trained fighters and many us-made weapons.
