BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces, led by the Republican Guard, continue to rout ISIS in the northeastern countryside of Hama Governorate, today liberating a number of key locations from the terrorist group.

According to military sources, the SAA was able to secure three key areas from ISIS after a brief engagement with the jihadist faction’s militants south of Ithriyah town, these include the runs of Kharab al-Katnah, the mountain of Jabal Dawylab and the hilltop of Tal Mazroor.

Al-Masdar News currently has no information regarding losses sustained by either the SAA or ISIS as a result of today’s engagement.

In any case, this recent advance by the SAA comes several days after it liberated the village of Marinia (for a second time) and a number of points south of it from ISIS.

The offensive operation being witnessed in this region of Syria is all part of an ongoing effort by pro-government forces to create a large buffer zone south of the Ithriyah to Resafa highway and to further isolate Islamic State militants in Hama Governorate from their comrades in the easternmost regions of Syria (e.g. Deir Ezzor).
