Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 10th Tank Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the predominately Palestinian pro-government militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigades) – defeated the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the western outskirts of Ithriyah in order to reopen the strategic Ithriyah-Salamiyah Road inside the Hama Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade in the eastern Hama city of Al-Salamiyah, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to recapture the territory lost to the terrorist group along the Ithriyah-Salamiyah Road after intense clashes with ISIS this morning left many enemy combatants dead and much of their equipment destroyed.

While the Syrian Armed Forces were successful in the aforementioned military endeavor, the Syrian Government’s main supply route along the Aleppo-Khanasser Highway that leads to the Aleppo Governorate remains cutoff by ISIS; this report has been confirmed by multiple sources from the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces in the Hama Governorate.

As long as ISIS has control of the Ithriyah-Khanasser Road, the Syrian Armed Forces will not have direct access to the imperative Aleppo-Khanasser that leads to the Aleppo Governorate’s provincial capital.

However, in conjunction with the Syrian Arab Army’s success along the Ithriyah-Salamiyah Road, the Russian Air Force has emerged to help push the terrorist forces back towards the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
