The army men carried out a fresh round of mop-up operation along the road that connects the town of al-Rasafeh to the town of Ithriya in Northeastern Hama and managed to take control over the villages of Khirbet Qasr al-Matyah and Jabal Aqroub Zaro.
The Syrian pro-government forces further deployed 15km away from their comrades in Ithriya.
Relevant reports said on Thursday that the army troops conducted military operations against the last remaining ISIL stronghold in Aleppo province that is represented by a belt of fortified villages buried in a mountainous semi-desert landscape to the Northeast of the strategic town of Khanasser.

They also continued operations in the Northeastern parts of Khanasser, recapturing the towns of Rasm Askar, Al Atshaneh and Sharimeh.
