Syrian Army Liberates Key Town in Hama

The Syrian army and allied forces seized back control of the strategic town of Qal'at al-Maziq in Hama from Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists on Thursday.

The Arabic-language service of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the Syrian army troops and their allies continued operations in Northern Hama on Thursday and could liberate Qal’at al-Maziq in Sahl al-Qab region.

It added that Tahrir al-Sham militants started leaving Qal’at al-Maziq on Wednesday night after their defense lines in the town collapsed in the Syrian army operations.

In a relevant development on Wednesday, a large number of Chinese terrorists of the Turkistani Party were killed in the Syrian Army’s ambush operations in Northwestern Hama, the Arabic-language media outlets said.

“Turkistani Party’s Chinese terrorists launched an attack on the Syrian Army’s military positions in Taleh Bakir in Sahl al-Ghab region in Northwestern Hama, the Arabic-language version of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted a military source as saying.

The source noted that the Syrian Army troops ambushed the terrorists in Taleh Bakir and brought their movements under heavy artillery and missile attacks, killing a number of them and foiling their offensives.

A military source said the Syrian Army has established its military positions in Tal Osman region and its surrounding areas in Northern Hama, and added that the Syrian Army troops have advanced towards terrorists’ strategic base in the town of Kafar Naboudeh in Northern Hama.
