Militant groups have set up a new operation room in the northern part of Hama province in order to oppose the Syrian government forces’ offensive – the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces – in the area.
The newly created operation room is called the “Northern Hama Operations Room” and includes next militant groups:
- Jaish al-Nasr
- Jaish al-Izza
- Faylaq al-Sham
- Abna al-Sham
- Liwa Omar
The creation of the new operation room is the militants’ last attempt to retake the initiative in the province. Recently, the Syrian government forces have retaken from militant groups about 80 km2 of the territory and now they are advancing on the key town of Morek.
