The Syrian Army units continued their clashes with Tahrir al-Sham terrorists after taking full control of the town of Jisat in Northern Hama. The Damascus Army regained control over Savameh Jisat and Damion Farms after inflicting heavy losses on the terrorists.
The Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik News Agency, meantime, reported that the Syrian Army, in its recent advances in Northern Hama, has laid siege on the town of al-Hobait, one of main bastions of Tahrir al-Sham in Southern Idlib, from the Southern and Western directions.
