BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched an important counter-offensive on Thursday that targeted the jihadist positions inside the town of Al-Hamamiyat, which was captured by the latter the day before.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began their assault by repeatedly pounding the jihadist positions in Al-Hamamiyat with a plethora of missiles and artillery shells.
Once this barrage ended, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the jihadist positions in Al-Hamamiyat, scoring a quick advance after overrunning the main militant line of defense.
The Syrian Arab Army would later take full control of Al-Hamamiyat and its corresponding hilltop after killing and wounding scores of jihadists.
Since recapturing Al-Hamamiyat, the front-lines in northwestern Hama have returned to what they were at the start of July.
