Syrian Army Thwarts Terrorists’ Attempts to Capture Hama-Aleppo Supply Route
The ISIL attacked on the positions of the Syrian army along Ithriya-Khanaser road near the village of Sheikh Hillal to capture the supplying line but they failed.
The army later closed the road and did not permit any vehicle to pass.
A few hours later the Syrian government force pushed the militants back and reopened the road.
The ISIL left behind several killed or wounded members and fled the battlefield.
The Ithriya-Khanaser road is now open and is under full control of the Syrian soldiers.
On Friday, the Syrian officials announced that the militants deployed in a number of villages across the West-Central province of Hama agreed to join the truce with the Syrian government forces.
“Over 30 villages in the Hama province have agreed to reconcile with the government after a Russian delegation facilitated a rapprochement between the fighting sides,” sources said
The location and names of these villages were not announced by the Syrian officials; however, they are most likely located in Southern Hama, where the terrorist groups are still fighting the government forces.
