Moments ago, the conglomerate of Islamist factions in northern Syria “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) imposed full control over the strategic city of Morek in northern Hama after a series of firefights with the Syrian Arab Army’s 87th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division.

According to a field journalist that was with the SAA’s 87th Brigade, the pro-government forces lost several sites along the Kafr Zita-Morek road that leads to the town’s western axis before they conceded the entire area to the Islamist rebels of Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda affiliate), the Free Syrian Army’s 505th Regiment, and Ajnad Al-Sham.

With the town of Morek under Jaysh Al-Fateh’s control, the Syrian Armed Forces will be forced to fortify the imperative towns of Taybat Al-Imam and Souran in order to prevent the Islamist rebels from pushing further south to the provincial capital.

The field journalist has confirmed that most of the Syrian Arab Army’s soldiers have withdrawn to the checkpoint outside of the village of Lahaya.

The Syrian Armed Forces were able to achieve some success in northern Hama on Wednesday, as they reportedly recaptured the integral hilltop of Tal ‘Uthman and the nearby village of Al-Bani after intense clashes with Jaysh Al-Fateh combatants.
