A military expert hailed the Syrian army’s recent victories against the foreign-backed terrorists, and said that the new military gains in Hama and Idlib provinces are prelude to large-scale battles targeting the militants across the country.
“The Syrian army is conducting military operations to assess the military capabilities of the terrorists and bring them out of their hideouts to pave the way for a major battle to seize back the cities of Aleppo, Jisr al-Shugour and Ariha,” Syrian military expert Ali Maqsoud told FNA on Monday.
He pointed to the Syrian army’s strategy in its battles against the terrorist in Idlib and Hama, and said, “The Syrian army conducted unique and precise strategic military operations to bring out terrorists from their hideouts and then hunt them.”
On Sunday, the Syrian army seized back new areas in heavy clashes with Jeish al-Fath Takfiri terrorists in Idlib countryside.
The army units took control of the towns of Tal Hakma, Tal Awar and Marj al-Zahour in Idlib province, Northwestern Syria.
Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more injured in fierce clashes with the Syrian troops while a large number of them fled the scene.
The Syrian army is now advancing towards the towns of Farika and al-Qahera.
Idlib has been under the Takfiri terrorists’ heavy missile and mortar attacks in recent months.
On Saturday, the foreign-backed Takfiri militants suffered more losses in Hama as the Syrian army continues to advance against them.
The army destroyed a concentration center of the Takfiri militants in al-Madeq citadel town to the Northwest of Hama, informed sources said.
Scores of terrorists were killed in the operation, including a senior commander nicknamed “Abu al-Dardar”.
On Friday, the army regained control over the towns of Ziyadia and Zayzoun in the countryside of Hama, and inflicted heavy losses on the terrorists.
