Syrian Army liberates 5 towns in ISIL’s northeast Hama pocket
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored another big advance in the Hama Governorate, tonight, liberating several towns from the so-called Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....

Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to take control of at least five towns from the Islamic State, following a short battle with the aforementioned terrorist group tonight.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Army liberated the towns of al-Dabiyah, al-Naqroush, Talal al-Janoubi, Rajm al-Abel al-Sharqi, and Rajm al-Abel al-Gharbi.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army has now seized 15 towns from the Islamic State in the last 24 hours, liberating more than 50 percent of this pocket in the process.
