Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 87th Brigade of the 10th Tank Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – broke-through the Islamist rebel defenses at Kafr Naboudeh and took control of the southern entrance into this imperative town inside the Hama Governorate’s northern countryside.

The Syrian Armed Forces were able to progress to Kafr Naboudeh after the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Hind Helicopter Gunships pounded the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army’s 101st Brigade, Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at the aforementioned town, paving the way for the SAA and NDF to attack the southern gates.

Kafr Naboudeh is a town located on the border of the Idlib Governorate; it sits at the neck of the northern Hama salient that the Syrian Armed Forces are currently attacking.

If Kafr Naboudeh is captured by the Syrian Armed Forces, then the Islamist rebels entrenched inside the imperative city of Kafr Zita will be flanked from both the east and west; this would be disastrous for the Islamist rebels because this area provides them a buffer-zone to the south of Khan Sheikhoun.

In addition to their advance at Kafr Naboudeh, the Syrian Armed Forces are pushing north towards the Idlibi town of Al-Tama’aneh; if captured, the strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun will be in serious danger.
