Syrian Army secures strategic hilltop in southern Idlib
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) finally captured and secured the strategic hilltop of Tal SyriaTel in the southern countryside of Idlib after a long battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
Led by the 4th Mechanized Division and Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army was involved in an intense battle with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham for this hilltop that lasted for more than 72 hours.
Tal SyriaTel had been lost and recaptured at least four times in the last few weeks, prompting the Syrian Army to send reinforcements to this front in order to secure this hilltop once and for all.
With Tal SyriaTel under their control, the Syrian Army is now in position to strike the small town of Zafiryah, which is located just east of Tal Khunzeer.
