Army retakes 3 towns in western Syria


Syrian army troops have managed to retake full control of three towns in the western part of the country.

On Sunday, Syrian army units pushed al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terrorists out of the town of al-Jabin as well as two others in the western province of Hama.

Requesting anonymity, a Syrian army trooper told Press TV “Our mission is to clear Hama Province completely and end the siege that terrorists are imposing on army bases in Wadi al-Daif in Idlib Province.”

Meanwhile, Syrian government forces continued their mop-up operations against terrorists in several areas across the country on Sunday, killing and injuring a number of them and destroying their vehicles.

Intense clashes erupted between the Syrian forces and Takfiri terrorists in the towns of Murk, situated some 200 kilometers north of the capital, Damascus, Kafr Zita, Khirbat Atshan and al-Habit in Hama Province. The Syrian army killed and injured a number of terrorists.

Syrian troops also confronted al-Nusra Front terrorists in the city of Saraqib in the northwestern province of Idlib, leaving a number of them dead and wounded and destroying several cars equipped with heavy machine guns.
