The Syrian Arab Army’s 11th Tank Division has captured the imperative city of Morek in the Hama Governorate, after almost 3 months of violent firefights and besiegement. Fighting is still being reported on the outskirts of the city; however, an SAA military source has stated that the city itself is under complete control of the SAA. The source also added that Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham (Falcons of the Levant Brigade) began their withdrawal from the city earlier this week due to the loss of the integral road to Khan Sheikhoun.
The Tiger Forces under the command of Col. Soheil Al-Hassan and Sgt. Lu’ayy Sleitan has cleared most of Al-Lataminah – the village just south of Morek. Jabhat Al-Nusra forces will now have to rely on their comrades in the city of Kafr Zita to hold their positions or else they will face encirclement by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the SAA. The loss of Al-Lataminah will further the plight of the Islamic Front fighters entrenched in Kafr Zita.
