Syrian Army Pounds Terrorists’ Command Center in Hama
The Syrian army units responded to the terrorists’ offensives against military points in Northern Hama on Thursday, and targeted their positions near the town of Murak, al-Latamineh, Kafr Zita, Kafr Naboudeh, Wadi al-Dorat and al-Hamirat in Northern Hama.
Meantime, field sources reported that the Syrian army forces destroyed several command centers of Jeish al-Izza militants, killing and wounding several of them.
Also, in Southeastern Idlib, the army troops attacked the terrorists’ moves towards army positions in Jorjanaz, Sakik and al-Khuwain, inflicting heavy tolls on them and wounding several other militants.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, a notorious commander of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at and a close aide to leader of the terrorist group Abu Mohammad Jolani was killed in a failed attack on the Syrian Army’s military positions in Southeastern Idlib.
“During an attack by Tahrir al-Sham and their allied militants on the Syrian Army’s military positions near Abu Dhuhour Military Airport in Southeastern Idlib, senior commander of Ajnad al-Kavkaz, nom de guerre Abu al-Bara Qafqazi, was killed,” the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted local sources in Idlib province as saying.
The report noted Qafqazi’s proximity with Abu Mohammad Jolani and that he was second-in-command of Tahrir al-Sham who had taken part in worst possible crimes in Northern Syria.
The sources were also quoted by Sputnik as saying that al-Qafqazi also in cooperation with Jolani played an important role in facilitating passage of terrorists from Central Asia and Caucasus via borders with Turkey.
