Syrian Army Responds To Militants’ Attacks In Northern Hama With Increased Artillery Strikes On Their Positions

Illustrative image

On August 5, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) artillery and rocket launchers shelled several positions of the militants in the villages and towns of al-Jnabirah, Arbain, al-Zakah, al-Ziyarah and Zayzun in the northern Hama countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

As a result of the shelling, many militants were killed, including “Taiser Ahmad al-Eis,” a fighter of the newly formed National Front for Liberation (NFL).

The shelling is a clear response to the failed attack of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) on the area of Zilaqiat, which occurred a day earlier. According to the SANA, the SAA repelled the attack after killing and injuring several militants.

These repeated violation of the de-escalation zone in the northern Hama countryside may force the SAA and its allies to launch a military operation to secure the region. Earlier this year, Turkey established several observation posts in northern Hama, but it failed to put an end to these violations.

    So……, Johnny Reb fears an upcoming government offensive, unites all the various alphabet letter soup groups and those with high and mighty lofty names into a super group. But like with actual super groups there are too many captains and egos clashing for command. Which is why super groups never last that long. So they have to prove their worth by attacking government forces. And in doing so not only fail miserably, but actually provide the government forces with the casus belli to attack them. Which will be their downfall.

    Great strategy on Johnny Reb’s part!

      Who hell is Johnny Reb, you are calling the takfiris ‘Johnny Rebel’? By the way, some are not takfiris, but ‘Johnny SAA agents’.

        You’ve never heard of Johnny Reb? That’s what the Union armies called the Confederates in the American Civil War.

      And do not forget about the Chinese who are thinking about sending forces to fight all those Uighurs from china that “Ergodog” has trained and sent to northern Syria. It just gets better!

        I wouldn’t bet too much money on those Chinese troops arriving. Those stories have been going around for at least 2 years, if not more, with no Chinese in sight. The Chinese will probably enter this war like the Turks did in WWII, in its final months, with not a single Turkish soldier seeing action.
