The ISIS defense fully collapsed under pressure from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces in the northeastern Hama pocket, according to pro-government sources. Government troops reportedly liberated Ibn Wardan Qastel and the large nearby area from the terrorists.
On the same time the situation in Muakara Shamali, Abu Ajwa and Rasm Jubb al-Haamlan remains unclear. Some sources say that ISIS had already withdrawn from these points and its defense is contentrated in the area of Suruj.
Some sources even speculated that ISIS units withdrew from northeastern Hama to the province of Idlib overnight. However, these reports have not been confirmed by any evidence yet.
