BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in the northeastern countryside of the Hama Governorate, Tuesday, seizing another town from the jihadist rebels.

Backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Russian Air Force, the Syrian Arab Army’s Qalamoun Shield advanced northeast of recently captured Duma to attack the small town of Qasr Al-Shawi near the Idlib Governorate border.

Within hours of launching this assault, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies were able to expel the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham from Qasr Al-Shawi, allowing them to assert full control over the town.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army should be able to seize several villages and hilltops in the coming days, as Qasr Al-Shawi overlooks many areas in northeastern Hama.

The nearby towns of Arfah and Al-Rabdeh are already under attack by the Russian Air Force and should be captured by the Syrian Arab Army within the next 24 hours.
