Syrian army close to terrorist key base in Idlib province

The Syrian Army continued its military operations in Northern Hama, regaining control of several regions and reaching the strategic town of al-Habit in the Southern part of Idlib province.

The Syrian army troops, backed by artillery fire, engaged in heavy clashes with Tahrir al-Sham militants in Northwestern Hama, recapturing the town of al-Sakhar and Tal al-Sakhar.

Meantime, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the army forces have gained control over the town of al-Jaisat in Northern Hama near the border with Idlib province, adding that they have approached the town of al-Habit in Southern Idlib, one of the terrorists’ strategic bases.

The Syrian army destroyed a military convoy of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists in Northern Hama after operations to regain control of the militants’ main base in the ‘death triangle’.

A Syrian military source reported on Thursday that the army forces had cut the main supply route of Tahrir al-Sham and Jeish al-Izza from the town of Kafar Zita to al-Latamineh in Northern Hama which is their main base in the death triangle, after liberating the towns of al-Arbaeen and al-Zakat.

He added that the Syrian army is trying to advance towards the town of Kafar Zita, noting that several towns and villages, including al-Latamineh, will collapse militarily after the army’s control over the region.

Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted a field source as saying that the Syrian army had targeted the military convoys of Tahrir al-Sham which were moving towards the fronts in Northern Hama to retake the lost areas, with artillery and missile fire, killing tens of terrorists.

He added that the Syrian air force also pounded the terrorists’ positions in Khan Sheikhoun, Abedin, Jabal Shahshabou, Madaya and al-Habit in Southern Idlib, destroying several positions of the so-called National Liberation Front and killing a large number of them.

Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army’s operations in provinces across Syria.
