Terrorists Retreat From More Positions in Syria’s Hama
The Syrian army troops and the National Defense Forces pushed back the militants of al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front from the village of Madajen in the Northern part of Hirbnafsa following a several-hour battle with the terrorists.
Nusra suffered a heavy death toll and its military equipment sustained major damage in the attacks.
On Saturday, the ISIL attempts to capture part of a strategic road connecting Hama to Aleppo were fended off by the Syrian Army troops.
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.
