BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – Syrian pro-government forces battling Al-Qaeda-linked militants in northeast Hama province have scored a major breakthrough, drastically developing the speed of their advance in the region and liberating scores of villages.

Today, pro-government forces – including the Syrian Arab Army, National Defence Forces and Qalamoun Shield Forces – liberated five towns and villages in a blitz advance that capitalized on gains made earlier in the week.

The newly liberated settlements have been identified by military-affiliated sources as Rasm al-Ahmar, Rasm al-Sawi, Rasm al-Sawwan, Mashirfat Adwan and Mashirfat Muwylah.

By this advance, pro-government forces have almost surrounded the strategic town of Rahjan – the headquarters of the Syrian Ministry of Defence prior to its capture by rebel militias in July 2014 – from the south and east.

According to Al-Masdar News journalist Ibrahim Joudeh, the town of Rahjan will now be the next target for pro-government forces.

It does me good to come home this evening after a long day at work and read this. Whatever God or Gods we all believe in ……. or don’t, I wish all God’s good graces upon you in this fight against pure evil.
