Syrian Army captures several areas as militants face full expulsion from Hama
2019-08-09
[ALMASDARNEWS] The holy warrior forces are on their last legs in the Hama Governorate following a string of losses at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Backed by heavy artillery and Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched an important attack to secure the southeastern and eastern flank of Kafr Naboudeh this morning.

Within hours of launching this attack, the Syrian Arab Army had managed to capture the large hilltop of Tal Sakhar, which had previously been a launching point for the holy warriors on Kafr Naboudeh.

In addition to capturing Tal Sakhar, the Syrian Army also took control of the town of Sakhar and nearby grain silos after the holy warriors of Jaish al-Izza retreated further east.

With Kafr Naboudeh now fully secured, the Syrian Arab Army can now shift their attention to the town of al-Hobeit, which is located inside the Idlib Governorate.

Since the start of their military operations in May, the Syrian Arab Army has targeted Tal Sakhar in a bid to secure Kafr Naboudeh and eventually advance to al-Hobeit.

As a result of today’s operations, the Syrian Army can further expand east and attempt to expel Jaish al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
from the Hama Governorate.
