Fresh off their largest advance inside the Hama Governorate’s southeastern countryside in over three years, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division was eager to continue where they left off on December 30th when they captured 5 villages from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Al-Salamiyah) – imposed full control over the village of Jarniyah after an intense firefight with Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham in Hama’s southerneastern countryside that leads to the eastern deserts of the Homs Governorate.

According to a battlefield journalist that is embedded in Al-Salamiyah, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade and their allies killed 17 enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham before the aforementioned Islamist rebel forces retreated towards the Homs Governorate’s border.

The battlefield journalist also added that firefights are ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels in the Al-Salamiyah District’s southeastern countryside.
