BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – On Wednesday, The militant-held fortress town of Al-Latamenah in the northern countryside of Hama province came under heavy attack by the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Army.

On the one hand, Russian airpower smashed militant positions and movements in Al-Latamenah with pin-point strikes; on the other hand, the Syrian Army unleashed a huge salvo of Grad rocket fire.

According to reports, Russian warplanes delivered at least four airstrikes (as far as video evidence shows) on the town, whilst artillery units of the Syrian Army fired 40 Grad rockets.

Al-Latamenah severs as a major stronghold for armed rebel groups in northern Hama, acting as a prime mobilization point for militant offensives across the region (of which there were three such operations by insurgent faction in 2017).

The town – which has never fallen back into government hands since it was seized by rebel fighters around six years ago – is very well fortified, possessing within its vicinity a complex network of underground tunnels that can even fit tanks in them.
