Terrorists launch counter-offensive with several suicide attacks in northern Hama
The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-‘Izza launched counter-offensive in the northern countryside of Hama today, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses around the village of Al-Massasnah.
Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham led the offensive by utilizing several suicide bombers in an attempt to overwhelm the Syrian Arab Army units defending Al-Massasnah.
However, several of the suicide attacks would fail to reach their intended targets, which resulted in heavy casualties for Hay’at Tahrir AL-Sham this afternoon.
Intense clashes are currently ongoing between the jihadist rebels and the Syrian Arab Army at the Al-Massasnah axis, but preliminary reports indicate that the former has begun pulling back their fighters after suffering heavy casualties.
