Syrian Army captures six towns in southeast Hama – map
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their offensive in the southeastern countryside of the Hama Governorate on Monday, seizing several localities from the jihadist rebels in this area.
Led by their 4th and 11th divisions, the Syrian Arab Army was able to infiltrate the jihadist lines near the Jinn Mountains, paving the way for another large-scale advance.
As a result of this push, the Syrian Arab Army is now in control of six new localities that were previously under the control of the jihadist rebel forces in this part of Hama.
The Syrian Arab Army kicked off this southeast Hama offensive over the weekend, citing the refusal of the jihadist rebels to surrender the area as the primary reason for their operation.
