The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF)
continued their attempts to retake the town of Souran from Hayat Tahrir
al-Sham (HTS) and its allies in northern Hama. The SAA and the NDF had
regrouped and deployed artillery units and military equipment for this
operation. An intense clashes are ongoing in the area.
Reports appear that some HTS allies failed to absorb the pressure
from government forces and decided to withdraw from the area. If
confirmed, this will likely lead to collapse of the militants’ defenses
in the area soon.
