Syrian Soldiers Recapture Strategic Town in Hama Province
“Militants sent tens of reinforcements from the nearby town of Taybat al-Imam to Souran to prevent the fall of the city,” a battlefield source said, “But pro-government forces inflicted heavy damage and casualties on the terrorists and took back the city”.
According to the source, after the Syrian Army won back Souran, the terrorists launched a large-scale assault from Taybat al-Imam to drive the pro-government forces out the city, but were pushed back.
The source said the terrorists are conducting repeated counterattacks to enter Souran and bloody chashes are underway now.
The Syrian Army and popular forces started a joint operation on Monday to beat the terrorist groups back from the towns of Taybat al-Imam and Souran in Northern Hama.
The Syrian army, backed by the Syrian and Russian bombers, have seized back over several villages and heights in the Northern parts of Hama in recent months.
