BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a big advance in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Saturday after launching another wide-scale assault in this area.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army began the day by storming the militant-held towns of Midan Ghazal, Arimah, and Al-Shari’ah; this resulted in a heavy battle with the jihadist rebels that were defending this part of northwestern Hama.

Ultimately, the Syrian Army’s attack proved too much for the militant forces as they were forced to retreat towards the Idlib Governorate’s border.

The Syrian Army then fully secured these three towns and began sending in reinforcements from the National Defense Forces (NDF) to setup new checkpoints in this area.

Following this advance, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the towns of Bab Al-Taqa and Mustariha in northwestern Hama.

According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army managed to crack the jihadist defenses at these two towns, resulting in their subsequent capture after a short battle.

Since capturing these five towns, the Syrian Army has restarted their bombardment of Tal Sakher and Al-Hobeit in northwestern Hama.

Thus far, the Syrian military has been unable to penetrate Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s lines at these two areas, despite nonstop artillery and missile strikes.
