Syrian Army captures two towns in Idlib – map
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a surprise attack near Abu Dhuhour last night, targeting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions at the western axis of the city.
Led by units of the Tiger Forces and Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the towns of Tal Sultan and Al-Mushayrifah, which resulted in an intense battle that lasted for two hours.
According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army seized Tal Sultan and Al-Mushayrifah after they infiltrated Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s front-lines.
As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army once again secured the western axis of Abu Dhuhour city, while also forcing the jihadist rebels to retreat further into the Idlib countryside.
