Syrian Army Inches Closer to Main Bastion of Terrorists in Northeastern Hama
The army units stormed Al-Nusra’s defense lines in Northeastern Hama and captured the Old Air Defense Battalion Base and Tal (hill) Aswad in their push towards the small town of Abu Dali, a main terrorist stronghold in the region.
Also, the army’s artillery and missile units pounded the supply lines and movements of Al-Nusra in the villages of Sinjar, al-Zafar, al-Khowein, Tal Amarah, Tal Mardikh and Kafr Amim, killing tens of terrorists and destroying their military vehicles.
A military source, meantime, said that the army now overlooks al-Mosheirefeh and al-Dajaj region that are the last barriers in front of them to reach Abu Dali after they managed to take control over the Old Air Defense Battalion Base.
Field sources said on Tuesday that a large number of fresh soldiers and a large volume of military equipment were dispatched by the army to Northern Hama on Monday afternoon.
The sources further said that the fresh forces were previously in Wadi region near the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzur province, adding that the army has dispatched a large number of troops from Deir Ezzur to Hama, but, some Tiger Force units are still waiting for the commanders’ order to move to Hama.
The Tiger Force has sent almost a half of its troops from Deir Ezzur to Northern Hama.
