Earlier today, Jabhat Al-Nusra and members of the Islamic Front were forced to retreat further north in the key village of Al-Lataminah, after the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Operations Unit known as the “Tiger Forces” carried out multiple raids on their positions. According to a military source, the Tiger Forces destroyed a large militant den, while confiscating a large cache of weapons and ammunition. The Tiger Forces reportedly killed 22 militants, including the Islamic Front field commander, Mohammad Haroush.

North of Al-Lataminah, the Syrian Arab Army’s 106th Brigade of the Republican Guard is carrying out operations in the imperative villages of Morek and Kafr Zita. Yesterday, the 106th targeted a militant gathering in west Morek, killing 16 Islamic Front fighters. While in Kafr Zita, the Republican Guard seized an Islamic Front weapons depot in the southwest corner of the besieged village.

The 87th Mechanized Brigade of the 11th Armored Division in the Syrian Arab Army 2nd Army Corps conducted multiple attacks on Jabhat Al-Nusra and Islamic Front positions in west Hama. In particular, the 87th Brigade has targeted the Islamic Front in the village of ‘Itameen, where entrenched IF fighters control multiple farms they use as a military base.

Meanwhile, life in Mhardeh and Halfaya are quickly returning back to normal for the citizens. Thousands of displaced civilians from Halfaya returned home after the liberation by the National Defense Forces (NDF) last month. Syrian engineers have worked vigorously to reestablish electrical lines in the village to end the power outage.

In Mhardeh, the city’s amusement park has reopened after its one month closure due to safety precautions. Jabhat Al-Nusra continues to fire rockets at the Mhardeh Power Plant, but with the SAA’s recent battlefield achievements; it will likely dissipate over the coming weeks.
