On Saturday morning, the Russian Air Force woke-up the sleeping Islamist militants from the conglomerate of Al-Qaeda factions “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) with a series of powerful airstrikes inside the Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate’s western countryside, destroying much of the aforementioned Islamist group’s hardware in the town of Fawru, while also weakening their defenses.

Capitalizing on the Russian Airstrikes impact, the Syrian Arab Army’s 45th Regiment of the 1st Armored Division – in coordination with the Imam Al-Baqeer Brigades of the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – stormed the defenses of  Jaysh Al-Fateh’s largest factions – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – at the imperative city of Fawru on the border of the Idlib Governorate.

Following a series of intense firefights with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to take full-control of Fawru, killing over 20 enemy combatants and destroying four of their armored vehicles that were mounted with 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

With the towns of Fawru and Al-Bahsa under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces are now at the southern perimeter of Al-Sirmaniyah; this town is located directly south of the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour, which was captured during Jaysh Al-Fateh’s summer offensive inside the Idlib Governorate.

In addition to their advance in the Al-Ghaab Plains’ northern countryside, the Syrian Armed Forces advanced into Al-Mansoura from their positions Khirbat Al-Naqoous; if Al-Mansoura is captured, they will likely push east towards the town of Ziyarah.
