The situation is developing in northwestern Hama where the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies launched an advance on positions of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, Jaish al-Izza and other militant groups on May 6.

After the start of the advance, army troops seized several points north and northwest of Kernaz including al-Bana, al-Janabira and Tell Ottman.

By the evening, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-led forces had launched a counter-attack attempting to recapture the lost positions. In the morning of April 7, clashes continued.

The points captured by the SAA on May 6 remain contested.

Pro-militant sources released multiple conflicting reports urging that from 20 to 80 pro-government fighters were killed. Most of these claims are not based on any evidence. In own turn, pro-government sources say that up to 20 militants were killed. This number also remains unconfirmed.
