The Al-Qaeda (AQ) branch in Syria dealt a huge blow after Syrian Army troops launched fresh artillery and missile attacks on their positions.
AQ official branch known as Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) operating in Northern and Western Hama lost tens of their fighters after Syrian army units opened heavy artillery and fire their positions. The terrorist group also lost technical vehicles and weaponry.
Also, the army’s missile units pounded terrorists’ positions in the village of al-Zakah in Northern Hama, killing and wounding a number of terrorists and destroying their military equipment.
Separately, other artillery and missile units targeted terrorists’ strongholds in the village of al-Howayez in Jourin heights in Western al-Ghaab plain where several terrorists were killed.
Army officers say they will soon take control over the entire militant-held regions in Southeastern Hama as the peace agreement struck by the Syrian army and Russian military with the population of the region envisages expulsion of terrorists from Southeastern Hama.
