BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began a new offensive in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate after reversing all of the militant advances near the town of Al-Sqaylabiyeh.
Under the cover of night, the Tiger Forces began the offensive by storming the farms located southwest of the town of Zakat.
The Syrian Arab Army’s attack would ultimately pay off as their troops were able to seize some of the farms southwest of Zakat.
Zakat is one of the last towns in northern Hama before reaching Kafr Zita from its western axis.
Kafr Zita is one of Jaysh Al-Izza’s main strongholds in the Hama Governorate; it is heavily fortified and protected by a large number of militants.
