DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:05 P.M.) – After setting up an elaborate mine field and a strong defensive line in the Mustariha sector, Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) militants are causing problems for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on one axis in northeastern Hama, specifically targeting its large arsenal of Russian-manufactured armored vehicles.

Photos released by TIP on Thursday showed a T-62 tank it had destroyed in the aforementioned rural area during the afternoon. Earlier this week, a tank of the same specific type had been abandoned by the SAA, also near the town of Mustariha.

Today however, the SAA managed to retrieve the lost T-62 tank as another armored vehicle towed it away from the battlefield, drone photos reveal:

Despite sustaining some human and material losses, the SAA is advancing in other areas of northeastern Hama, constantly probing weak lines in the jihadist defenses while systematically calling in Russian airstrikes on their strong points.
