Syrian Army, Popular Forces Launch Large-Scale Operation in Northern Hama
“The Syrian pro-government forces launched their attacks on terrorist groups from different Ma’ardes, Qamhaneh and Khirbet al-Hajameh and Khattab towards Tayab al-Imam,” the Lebanese al-Akhbar reported.
“Attacks on Tayab al-Imam will end in closure of supply line between terrorists in Souran and Helfaya and will give overlooking positions to Syrian army over the village of Albu Yedheh, whose seizure by the Syrian army will ruin terrorists’ plan to make a safe line from northeastern Hama to Northwester Hama,” the paper added.
“Popular forces in al-Mahradeh have started their attacks on terrorist centers in Helfaya to prevent any possible counter-attack,” the paper said, adding, “The Syrian Army’s artillery units have planed very crucial role in Northern Hama’s operation.”
Reports said earlier today that Syrian and Russian fighter jets targeted separately the positions of the terrorist groups near four small towns in Northern Hama to pave the ground for the Syrian army soldiers to have easier access to the militants’ defense lines.
Positions of Jund al-Aqsa near the towns of Taybat al-Imam, Souran, Helfaya and Morek were massively bombed by the Russian and Syrian fighter jets, killing and wounding scores of the terrorists and destroying their military hardware.
Meantime, some sources claimed that a military helicopter was downed to the Northwest of government-controlled Hama
“They shot down a Syrian army helicopter, a pilot and a co-pilot were killed.”
The Syrian army and popular forces are trying to retake the village and town which Takfiri terrorists have seized back in Hama province.
