In the aftermath of the SAA’s offensive, a source embedded with the Tiger Forces told Al-Masdar News that 6 tanks, over 30 technicals fitted with 23mm machineguns, one BMP-1 and two ammunition storages were destroyed after 72 hours of clashes in Taibat Al-Imam.

Participating in the Taibat Al-Imam battle were Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), Jaish Al-Izza (FSA), Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah. HTS commanders led the jihadist fighting force while other rebel factions reinforced the front ahead of the looming SAA assault.
