BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The hits keep coming for the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in northern Hama, as they lose more territory to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) today.
Backed by heavy airstrikes from their Russian allies, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Tiger Forces have captured another village in the northern countryside of Hama, putting them at the outskirts of another jihadist stronghold.
Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army captured the small village of Zour Al-Mahrouqah, which is located directly south of Al-Lataminah near the Idlib Governorate border.
According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Arab Army advanced north from recently captured Zour Al-Haysah to Zour Al-Mahrouqah, where they were confronted by an exhausted jihadist force.
Unable to hold the village, the jihadist rebels officially withdrew from Zour Al-Mahrouqah to Al-Lataminah outskirts, where they hope to make a stand against the swarming Syrian Armed Forces.
