TEHRAN The Syrian Army troops are preparing to impose full control over three strategic military bases of the terrorists in Northern Hama.
The Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik new agency quoted a war correspondent Basil Shartouh as saying that the Syrian Army will move towards the 'death triangle' comprising the three towns of al-Latamineh, Kafar Zita and al-Zuka after the army's recent advances in Tal Malh and al-Jobin massively backed by the country's air force.
Shartouh noted that the Syrian Army is now very close to al-Zuka which is the main base of Jeish al-Izzeh terrorists, and said that al-Zuka is the main place from where the terrorists launch rocket attacks on the towns and cities in Northern Hama.
He pointed to the Syrian Army's recent military advances deep inside the terrorist-controlled areas in Hama after securing al-Saqilbieh-Mahradeh road, and said that the Syrian Air Force has cut terrorists' movements and supply routes in Idlib in massive air raids.
The Syrian Army troops killed at least over 40 terrorists, most of them foreign militants, in military operations on the road to the town of al-Zuka.
In a relevant development on Thursday, the Syrian army hit a heavy blow at Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group's defense lines in the town of al-Latamineh in Northern Hama, forcing the militants to flee their most important headquarters in the region.
The Syrian army forces continued clashes with Tahrir al-Sham terrorists in the Eastern parts of the town of Tal Malah in Northern Hama on Thursday, retaking control of Wadi Hasmin region and the farms near the town of al-Zuka.
Meantime, a military source said that the Syrian army troops have regained control of Wadi Hasmin region, broken the first defense line of Tahrir al-Sham from al-Zuka and opened a new front towards the town of al-Latamineh as the militants' key base in Northern Hama.
He added that a large number of terrorists were forced to flee al-Latamineh as the army is advancing in the region.
The source also said that a group of 17 militants were killed in clashes in al-Zakah, adding that the army forces targeted the terrorists' supply lines in Hasraya and al-Arbaeen with artillery fire.
Meantime, the Syrian air force launched heavy attacks against the terrorists' positions in al-Latamineh, Kafr Zita, Latmin and Dawir al-Akrad in Northern Hama, destroying several of their bases and military vehicles and killing the militants inside.
