BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – The Russian and Syrian air forces are currently lighting up the northern countryside of the Hama Goverorate, targeting the positions of the Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham terrorist group.

According to a military report, Russian and Syrian jets hammered Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions inside the towns of Kafr Zita and Al-Lataminah, tonight, while their allies from the Syrian Arab Army prepares to kickoff their northern Hama offensive.

The Syrian Army is expected to launch a powerful offensive to seal the Hama Governorate’s northern countryside in the coming days; this operation is part of Damascus’ long-term plan to reopen the Idlib-Hama Highway.

In order to reopen this highway, the Syrian Army will have to expel all jihadist groups from several parts of the Idlib Governorate; if successful, Damascus believes they can negotiate a ceasefire deal that would allow for the Idlib-Hama Highway to once again be opened to the public.
