This exclusive Al-Masdar News map depicts the current military situation in the provinces of Hama and southern Idlib.  A summer rebel offensive in the village of Khatab has left Islamic Front troops vulnerable to a classic pincer maneuver in the north. In fact, the Syrian Arab Army has made significant advancements near Tal Maleh (Salt Hill) in recent days, while the SAA continues its siege at Morek. Subsequently, armed militants are in danger of having their supply routes obstructed during their strategic offensive near the Hama Airport.

Located in the heart of Syria, the M5 highway is vital due to its link of Syria’s integral provinces of Aleppo and Damascus, through Homs and Hama Governates. The rebels are keen to march towards the city of Hama, one of Syria’s most densely populated areas. On the other hand, Syrian Government forces are looking to quell the insurgency and link up with SAA troops in Idlib, further north. Nevertheless, the battle for control in central Syria continues without hindrance.
