This map provides a look at the military situation in the area of Abu al-Duhur on February 2. The Tiger Forces and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had liberated a large number of villages northeast of Abu al-Duhur from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda). Meanwhile, the Syrian Air Force carried out a large number of airstrikes on positions of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham near the town of Saraqib which will likely become the next target of the government anti-terrorist operation.
Additionally, the SAA increased pressure on ISIS in the southernpart of the ISIS-held pocket in northeastern Hama. Government troops liberated the village of Abu Khanadio and started moving towards Suruj.
