The Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division carried out a powerful assault along the Sheikh Hilal-Ithriyah Road on Friday, striking several sites under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Hama Governorate’s northeastern countryside.

With the Tiger Forces steadily advancing in the Khanasser Plains, the 66th Brigade – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – took the opportunity to capture a number of villages that are located near the imperative village of Al-Siin; this attack proved wise, as ISIS offered little resistance to the government forces.

According to a battlefield correspondent in the city of Al-Salamiyah, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade liberated the villages of Al-Hassou, Koujan, and Rasm Seifou after a short battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham along the road from Al-Siin to Sheikh Hilal.

The battlefield correspondent also added that 13 enemy combatants were killed and 2 armored vehicles mounted with 23 mm anti-aircraft machine guns were destroyed as a result of the Syrian Arab Army’s attack.

Meanwhile in the Aleppo Governorate, the Tiger Forces and their allies have liberated the Khanasser-Aleppo Road; however, they still have to recapture the remaining points under ISIS’ control along the Sheikh Hilal-Ithriyah Road.
