Syrian Arab Army units managed during the past few hours to eliminate terrorism in 15 villages in the countryside of Idleb and Hama provinces.

Assault units and airdrop forces in the Syrian Arab Army have been able to liberate the largest geographical area since the beginning of the military operations in this region amid successive collapses in the ranks of terrorists and their equipment, including vehicles, armored vehicles, US-made TOW missile launchers, and car bombs.

Speaking to SANA’s reporter, field commanders said that army units were able to break all the defenses of terrorist organizations despite their fortifications, which led to establishing control over the villages of Srouj, Adlia, Kefrya, Rwida, Establat, Rabia, Tal Oja, Rasm al-Hamidia, Hardana, al-Khriba, Kratin al-Saghir, Kratin al-Kabir, and Rabia, in addition to a number of main roads which includes Tal Daman/ Abu al-Dohor and Maaret Numan/ Abu al-Dohor as well as many secondary roads.

As a result of the military operations in the area, terrorists suffered huge casualties, Mousa al-Hamadani who was the field leader of Taftanaz group and Abu al-Qa’Qa Saleh being among the terrorists killed in the area. In addition entire networks of mines and explosive devices were defused in these villages.

This achievement in the countryside of Idleb province reduced the distance to the Abu Dahour military airport to less than 5 kilometers, as well as reducing the distance towards the advancing forces from Jabhat al-Hader in the southern countryside of Aleppo to 18 kilometers, the commanders said, adding that this achievement also helped in closing on the terrorist organizations in about 300 villages in the countryside of Aleppo, Hama, and Idleb.

Meanwhile in Hama countryside, army units continued their operations and restored control over al-Rahjan and al-Shakosia, which are considered the main hotbeds of Jabhat al-Nusra in the southeastern countryside of the province, after killing a large number of al-Nusra terrorists.

The army’s advancement in Hama countryside led to increasing the safe space for the Hama-Khanaser-Aleppo Road to more than 25 km on each side, as it resulted in striking down the main stronghold of al-Nusra and spreading panic among the remaining terrorists in the villages and small gatherings, which should lead to clearing the eastern countryside of Hama completely from terrorist organizations.

The fighting lines in Harasta witnessed violent clashes between Syrian army forces and allies and terrorist groups. The Syrian army took control of four blocks in the vicinity of the garage in an attempt to secure the supply lines to the management of vehicles and closing the gaps in front of terrorists. The Syrian army artillery carried out concentrated grenades to hit the supply lines of militants who violated the agreement of the de-escalation zone since the beginning of its operation last month.
