The sources pointed to the army’s ongoing operations to reach Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib and added that the army’s control over the base will pave the way for the easier advances and ultimately lift of the siege imposed by militants on Fua’a and Kafraya.
The army’s plan for Fua’a and Kafraya comes after the terrorist groups’ violation of their commitment to the agreement for the exit of residents of Fua’a and Kafraya and indifferences of international relief and rescue bodies to the besieged towns’ population.
The Syrian army is currently advancing towards Abu al-Dhohour from two fronts in Northern and Northeastern Hama and a front in Southern Aleppo.
Militant affiliated websites reported on Monday that the terrorist groups launched a large-scale offensive against the Syrian Army troops in Northeastern Hama to prevent them from pushing further towards Idlib province,
The news websites said that Jeish al-Izzah terrorist group affiliated to the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Islamic Turkistani Party and Jeish al-Ahrar opened a new front against the Syrian Army men in the town of Halfaya in Northeastern Hama to decrease the military pressure on their comrades in Northeastern Hama and Southeastern Idlib.
Field sources, meantime, reported that the army men repelled terrorists’ attack in al-Zalaqiyat North of Mahradah region.
