Troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces are working to secure the villages of Qasabiya, Humayrat, Hardanah and Qirutiyah, which they have recently liberated from militants in northwestern Hama.
Despite the tactical success in the area, SAA and Tiger Forces units sill have to consolidate their gains if they want to develop an advance even further.
Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Turkish-backed militant groups have concentrated a notable force north and east of Kafr Nabudah. This force is preparing for both offensive and defensive operations against pro-government forces.
