The army forces struck again Al-Nusra’s positions in Northern Hama and captured al-Zalaqiyat region after hours of non-stop battle, killing and wounding a number of militants.
A military source said al-Zalaqiyat region was home to the terrorists’ artillery and mortar units to target the army position, underlining the importance of the victory for the pro-government forces.
The source further added that the army will continue its operation in the triangle of al-Latamina-Kafr Zita- Morek to restore full security to the Northern territories of Hama.
A former commander of Al-Nusra Front said earlier today that top Commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board) Abu Mohammad Joulani should kill himself due to his weak management and following the recent defeats of his forces in the battle with the Syrian Army in Hama.
“Were I al-Joulani I would surely commit suicide in a religious way after the military collapse of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at’s forces” in the battle against the Syrian army in Northern Hama, Saleh al-Homawi wrote in his tweeter.
“Al-Nusra prevents other (terrorist) groups from participation in the battles (with the Syrian army), and then retreats in a dramatic manner,” he added.
Military analysts said that disagreement among terrorists and their commander has intensified after their repeated and rapid defeats of the terrorists in Northern Hama.
“Only when you renew allegiance we will agree your back up,” the commanders of Tahrir al-Sham had told Ahrar al-Sham commanders who had offered to dispatch their forces to Northern Hama battlefield to take part in clashes with the army.
Reports said that 10,000 terrorists participated in Northern Hama’s battle, adding that several thousands of them have thus far been killed in the clashes with the Syrian soldiers.
The army has also liberated large regions in Northern Hama in the last two months.
