On July 11, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) launched an attack to take back the town of al-Hamameyat, which they had lost to militants on July 10.

According to pro-government sources, SAA and NDF units already entered the outskirt of the town and started clashing with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) militants. The advance was backed by Russian and Syrian airstrikes.

Late on July 10, the SAA and the NDF retreated from the town after a series of clashes with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham that caused losses among SAA personnel and equipment.

      Agreed jim, a fresh batch of rats came out of hiding, time to bury them abd make the green grass of hama greener!

  • Free man

    Assad miscalculated.
    He overestimated the strength of the SAA on the one hand, and on the other, he underestimated Turkey’s support for the rebels .
    The only solution is a ceasefire agreed upon by Russia and Turkey.

    SAA needs to advance somewhere else, this front is too fortified, build your defenses and restart an offensive south of Aleppo province

    Listen very very carefully to what this great man said…who got butchered in Dallas, as his brother was in California and his son decades later…

      Fuck the Kennedys. They’re Shanty Irish whose wealth came from illegal smuggling and whose father thought that Hitler was great man. The old man made sure elections were crooked so JFK could win elections in his state then nationally. JFK and Robert stepped on too many mobsters’ toes so got whacked by them. John Jr. simply crashed his small aircraft which isn’t an uncommon occurrence when the pilot is high or drunk. Teddy was an alcoholic that got away with murder when driving while drunk.

    You fellahs might as well get used to this. The SAA should prevail since they have air support but they now are facing better trained militias that have ample supplies so will be facing a tough fight on the ground for quite some time.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    It’s already back in SAA hands now, that didn’t take long at all did it, just a few days.
