BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 P.M.) – Amid the refusal of some besieged ISIS fighters in central Syria to surrender their positions and accept transfer to Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army and allied paramilitaries have resumed their offensive in northern Hama, attacking jihadist forces from every direction.

On the Jib al-Jarrah front in north-central Homs, the Syrian Army ripped open ISIS lines in a sudden assault that has seen it liberate four towns in just as many hours. The settlements include al-Safwaniyah, al-Makramiya, Rasm Suwyid and Rajm al-Sharah.

Further north in the countryside of eastern Hama, the pro-government Qalamoun Shield Forces militia resumed its offensive on the town of Abu Hanaya and is currently storming it amid ongoing heavy clashes at the time of this report.

This renewed assault makes it clear that pro-government forces will continue to place military pressure on besieged ISIS militants in central Syria until they either surrender or are killed outright.
