Following the loss of Morek, the militants from Liwaa Al-Suqour Al-Sham (Falcons of the Levant Brigade) retreated southwest to Tal Itmeen, where they were confronted by a contingent from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Arab Army’s 11th Tank Division. The 11th Division was able to push through the rugged terrain and secure the hill around 4 P.M. Damascus Time. According to a military source, militants from Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham are attempting to regroup and counter the SAA’s success; however, it is unlikely that they will be able to hill.

The one week long (Morek was previously besieged for months) military operation led by the 11th Tank Division netted over 200 Islamic Front causalities, including 4 field commanders (2 from Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham) at the city of Morek in the Hama Governorate. The SAA suffered 27 casualties (unconfirmed), while the NDF lost 32 men (unconfirmed) during this operation.
