BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:03 P.M.) – Amid a rapidly expanding operation in the northeastern countryside of Hama province, the Syrian Arab Army and allied paramilitary groups have seized another town from Islamic State militants.

Moments ago, military affiliated sources reported that Syrian pro-government forces had captured the town of Abu Hariq from ISIS, capitalizing on the momentum of gains made on Sunday which saw the ejection of terrorist fighters from Aniq Bajrah and Tutah towns.

Al-Masdar News can now confirm that the main pro-government units involved in the anti-ISIS operation throughout northeast Hama are derived from the Syrian Army’s Republican Guard, the Qalamoun Shield Forces and Liwa al-Quds (Syrian-Palestinian militia).

Although not as sweeping as what has been witnessed in southern Aleppo and eastern Idlib over the last couple weeks, the Syrian military is now committed to military operations against ISIS in northwestern Syria with the ultimate aim being the total eradication of the terrorist group’s presence throughout the region.
