The Syrian military has made a significant advance through the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate recently, seizing more than 15 sites in this region of northwestern Syria.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has managed to reach the southwestern border of the Idlib Governorate.

The Syrian Arab Army was last in control of southwestern Idlib in 2014; however, a large-scale jihadist offensive in this region resulted in the military’s subsequent withdrawal to the northwestern countryside of Hama.

On Saturday, the Syrian military managed to reach the Idlib border after they captured at least five towns from the jihadist rebels in northwestern Hama.

According to Al-Mayadeen TV on Saturday, the Syrian military had managed to destroy a command center and several warehouses.

Earlier in the day, the Syrian troops had thwarted the jihadist offensive at the key town of Kafr Naboudeh in northwestern Hama, eliminating more than 40 Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham members.

The military operation the Syrian Arab Army launched on May 6th is aimed at securing the government towns in northwestern Hama and retaking the Al-Ghaab Plain areas that are currently under the control of the jihadist rebels. Furthermore, the Syrian military is seeking to capture the remaining jihadist-held areas in northeastern Latakia.
