The Syrian Arab Army announced it has regained control over Kafr Naboudeh in the north of Hama province on Sunday, days after militants claimed they took control over the strategic town.

Footage shows clouds of smoke billowing after shelling as well as SAA soldiers and military equipment in the liberated area.

“We had to retreat, and after two or three days we regrouped our forces to return today. By the will of God and by the will of the men we intruded Kafr Nboudeh and controlled the locations we previously held,” said a Syrian Arab Army officer.

Kafr Naboudeh is a strategic city located around 15 kilometres off the Hama-Aleppo highway.

Let’s take a look at the comments of the last few days on some sites. Many commentators are angry with Russia. Everyone is wondering why Russia does not stop Turkey’s support for the jihadists. Turkey sends assistance and support and arms, and russia does nothing. Russian soldiers were killed by the arms that turkey sent to the jihadists. Russia has sacrificed soldiers in the name of false friendship and false agreements with Turkey ????? This seems very strange.We read that Turkish trucks enter Syria every day. The jihadists or rebels or terrorists or criminals (they have many names …?) feel… Read more »

I think the u.s should show Assad and Russia a real military. Russia’s weakness is clear as day.

So more US soldiers can die for another’s man’s greed? So many times more come home with wounds that never heal, both physical and psychological? Go on the US Army’s Twitter feed and look at the thousands of horror stories of the people who have served when after the US Army asked “How has serving affected you?”. A real military? A real military asks questions, a real military does not blindly obey, a real military fights because they know who the enemy is, not because they’re told someone’s the enemy. The U.S. hasn’t had a real military since 1812.

American isn’t really interested in that bit of Syria…there happy to help where already have friends..if America really wanted to get involved it would bad for everyone and no side wants that… it’s still going to take another two years before everything is sorted out and it’s politics that will sort out.. political figures are the only way forward.

Kafr Naboudeh is starting to look like Nawa after these recent battles. I feel sorry for the people who called these towns home. There’s nothing left to come home to now.

Well these town “leaders” were in negotiations with SAA to reconcile but declined the offer. I put the blame squarely upon them and Loser Jolani. When your town/village is considered valuable real estate you must know that being in bed with Al-Qaeda has consequences. Bad leadership and a stupid decision. Over the course of time many towns/villages chose to reconcile and people had returned home. Choose wisely.
