TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units along with the country’s warplanes targeted the defense lines and movements of Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in six different regions in Northern Hama, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.
The artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at the strongholds of Al-Nusra in the towns of Souran, Taybat al-Imam, Atshan, Tal (hill) Bazam and Tal Skeik in Northern Hama, killing or wounding a number of terrorists and destroying their military vehicles and equipment.
In the meantime, the army aircraft carried out several combat flights over the Al-Nusra positions in al-Latamina, Taybat al-Imam, and areas near Souran in Northern Hama, killing a number of terrorists.
Relevant reports said on Saturday that the Russian fighter jets launched massive air raids on terrorists’ positions and gathering centers in Northwestern Hama, inflicting major losses on the militants.
The Russian warplanes, simultaneous with the army troops’ operation South of the town of Halfaya, carried out ten combat sorties and bombed heavily the positions of Jeish al-Izzah and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board) in Halfaya, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.
Field sources reported that the army used hundreds of soldiers and attacked terrorists’ positions South of Halfaya but a large number of militants in the battlefield slowed down the government forces’ advances in the region.
In the meantime, the army men launched fresh attacks on terrorists’ strongholds in various regions in Northern Hama and managed to advance in regions stretching to the towns of Souran and Taybat al-Imam.
