Aleppo, Syria – Rebels of Jaish al-Fatih (al-Fatih Army) reported new gains in northwestern Syria after launching an offensive on locations of pro-Assad army in the Sahl al-Ghab area, military sources reported on Tuesday.

Mustafa Suleiman, fighter in the ranks of Jaish al-Fatih, told ARA News that Jaish al-Fatih rebels launched a major offensive from several directions on the pro-regime checkpoints in the strategic area of Sahl al-Ghab, using various types of weapons, including rocket launchers, heavy artillery and local-made missiles.

Hundreds of jihadists from al-Nusra Front and Jund al-Aqsa brigade also participated in the anti-Assad operations in Sahl al-Ghab.

“Pro-Assad soldiers evacuated main bases under rebels’ heavy shelling in Hama province. Our (rebel) fighters seized several strategic hills, including Khattab, Hamkeh and Waset in Sahl al-Ghab. This will enable Jaish al-Fatih advancing towards the (regime-held) Freekeh military camp,” the source told ARA News.

Suleiman added that Jaish al-Fatish and allied armed factions are determined to control the Freekeh army base, “which will mean a real defeat for Assad army in Hama province”.
