DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:15 P.M.) – The past 24 hours have proven glorious for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama as government forces swept through Souran and several adjacent points following a massive Russian bombardment.

Late on Sunday afternoon, the SAA’s Tiger Forces proceeded to recapture an important nearby hill, known as Tall Bizam, and the Al-Makateeb checkpoint. These gains have effectively reversed every single advancement achieved through an Islamist offensive that began on March 20, spearheaded by suicide bombings.

With Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and its allies facing an utter collapse, the SAA will likely use the momentum to eliminate an insurgent salient in the region and possibly strike towards rebel heartland of Idlib province.

A new batch of SAA reinforcements arrived to the region yesterday, tipping the manpower balance in favor of government forces at least two-to-one.

According to military source close to Al-Masdar News, more than 50 jihadist militants were neutralized on Sunday through a mixture of airstrikes, artillery shelling and skirmishes.

They are those news that makes you happy all the rest of the day, news that relieves any malaise throughout the rest of the day. Congratulations to the Syrian army and to the brave and formidable Russian air force who is key in all that. Congratulations guys.

I am happy for the victory of Syria and Russia over terrorists and turkish puppets in Hama, while Erdogan in Turkey is disappointed and angry despite his supposed and suspicious victory in his false and tricky query for more powers than he already had.
Long live to Syria and Russia with all its allies.

Capturing a gang of White Helmets would be the Icing on the Cake of Victory.
