BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – Forces of the Syrian Arab Army have reclaimed a another string of towns and villages from jihadist-led militias along the Hama-Idlib provincial border in the country’s northwest over the last 24 hours.

According to reports by sources exclusive to Al-Masdar News, the units of the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces and 4th Mechanized Division – working in close cooperation – have liberated the towns and villages of Abu Omar, Al-Saloumyah and Al-Jadouyah and the hilltop of Tal Zattar since the taking of Abu Dali and Al-Hamdaniyah of Friday.

The liberation of these settlements have taken place just before and since the Syrian Army captured the fortress town of Atshan from militant forces a few hours ago.

The rapid advances by Syrian army forces are part of huge strategic operation aimed at fully expelling armed rebel groups from the province of Hama and setting the ground for additional offensives in the future to eventually liberate all of militant-held northwest Syria.
