The Syrian army units responded to the terrorists’ offensives against military points in Northern Hama on Thursday, and targeted their positions near the town of Murak, al-Latamineh, Kafr Zita, Kafr Naboudeh, Wadi al-Dorat and al-Hamirat in Northern Hama.
Meantime, field sources reported that the Syrian army forces destroyed several command centers of Jeish al-Izza militants, killing and wounding several of them.
Also, in Southeastern Idlib, the army troops attacked the terrorists’ moves towards army positions in Jorjanaz, Sakik and al-Khuwain, inflicting heavy tolls on them and wounding several other militants.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, a notorious commander of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at and a close aide to leader of the terrorist group Abu Mohammad Jolani was killed in a failed attack on the Syrian Army’s military positions in Southeastern Idlib.
“During an attack by Tahrir al-Sham and their allied militants on the Syrian Army’s military positions near Abu Dhuhour Military Airport in Southeastern Idlib, senior commander of Ajnad al-Kavkaz, nom de guerre Abu al-Bara Qafqazi, was killed,” the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted local sources in Idlib province as saying.
The report noted Qafqazi’s proximity with Abu Mohammad Jolani and that he was second-in-command of Tahrir al-Sham who had taken part in worst possible crimes in Northern Syria.
The sources were also quoted by Sputnik as saying that al-Qafqazi also in cooperation with Jolani played an important role in facilitating passage of terrorists from Central Asia and Caucasus via borders with Turkey.
