Following a series of setbacks under the pressure of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in northern Hama, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) achieved their first sucess south of Mushrifa.

According to pro-government sources, the SAA and the NDF retook the hill of Um Khazim and entered in Um Turaikiya where intense fighting erupted.

Um Khazim, Um Turaikiya, Balil and some nearby points were lost to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies earlier  this week. The Syrian military even said that militants had used chemical weapons in the area.

Jaish al-Izza, one of the allied militant groups of HTS, released a video showing yesterday’s clashes:

    Slowly you can tell the SAA has been rebuilding its forces since its ‘vanguard’ forces are mainly in Deir Ezzor yet they are slowly entering jihadi paradise

    So, even their use of chemical weapons against SAA did not save them and SAA managed to retake the position it lost due to use of CW by Al-Qaida.

    As soon as IS is wiped out DeZ the brave SAA, NDF and allies can go on ratsafari in Idlibistan and take back what is stolen by the wahabi savages

  • dutchnational

    So to recap this report HTS beat the shit out of SAA, learned from them how to effect chemical attacks and the only thing SAA has to show for this is the recapture of a hill??

    All this without mentioning HTS and others report SAA losing more than 6 tanks, having seized at least one or two SAA tanks ??

    • Bobby Twoshoes

      You’re hilarious mate, why would they need to mention terrorist claims? We have you and other meatpuppets to keep us up to date with their flawed reasoning and wild fantasies. You don’t even deny the chemical weapons usage by your idols, you simply brush it off with some puerile, not to mention counter-evidential, “they did it first” nonsense like some intellectually stunted infant.

    • FlorianGeyer

      That is a poor comment for you Dutch.

    • Gary Sellars

      Pro-jihadi cunt…. “learned from them how to effect chemical attacks “????? What a mofo…

      First you will cry that ISIS will be gone in a few days. Then you will cry when HTS start losing ground and important cities.

    • PZIVJ

      And now you are HTS twitter “news” supporter?
      I am not surprised at all, your Jihadist friends in Idlib will be dealt with in due time.

  • Garga

    Coward terrorists in eastern Ghouta under Israeli protection attacked Damascus using missiles, artillery and shells.

    They target populated and residential areas.
    It’s probably a provocation to give Israel an excuse to attack Syria, when SAA goes to dispatch those Wahhabi in-humans to hell.

  • Rodney Loder

    It was a good video though, give credit where credit is due, I think HTS. is believing that the SAA was working for them by eliminating IS more or less completely in Syria Iraq and Lebanon, Salman is cutting the dead wood and Trump is signalling through Kushner to test the public opinion, all logical strategies but only one player is desperate that is Salman, I see General Qassem Soleimani is in Deir Ezzor, he began the Aleppo campaign that ended in liberation if he came to Hama now it would worry a lot of Princes in Saudi Arabia that Salman is asking for action from, Salman’s consolidation is about balanced a lot of influential Saudies are deciding what to do to make the first move or let israel go first, in case israel doesn’t choose to go second silence is a virtue, Soleimani could swing it if he wanted to.
