DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:55 P.M.) – Having encircled dozens of the Islamic State militants in a small pocket in the eastern countryside of Hama, the Syrian Army began – this morning – a daring operation to storm the ISIS-held territories.

According to a military source, the government forces managed to recapture 3 towns inside the pocket after fierce clashes with the terror group.

” Al-Dakiylah Al-Shamaliyah, Al-Dakiylah Al-janoubyah and Um Hariteen have come entirely under the Army’s control,” the source told AMN.

The source added that battles are still ongoing on several axes which leaves the door open for more advance.

The Syrian Army, backed by allied forces and Russian Air Force, launched a full-scale offensive to oust the Islamic State from the stretching east Hama countryside as part of a wider offensive to reach the embattled city of Deir Ezzor.
