BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 A.M.) – Elite troops within the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) managed to capture an opposition militant stronghold in northern Hama during heavy combat with anti-government militant group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) on Thursday.

Tiger Forces and two brigades of the 4th division retook the town of Taibat al-Imam, breaking through opposition forces’ defensive line and establishing control in the area for the first time since 2016.

Following the capture of Taibat Al-Imam, the Syrian Arab Army shifted their attention to the large town of Halfaya, where they were confronted by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham militants on Thursday evening.
