Multiple Airstrikes Hit Militant Positions In Northern Hama Ahead Expected Syrian Army Advance On Souran


On April 11, the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force intensified airstrikes on positions of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its allied “moderate opposition” groups in the northern part of the Syrian province of Hama, according to local sources and media activists.

Airstrikes were reported in Halfaya, Souran and Taybat al-Imam controlled by the joint militant forces led by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

Meanwhile, pro-government activists report a movement of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops and military equipment near Maardas and Iskandariyah. Pro-government forces are reportedly forming an assault force to advance on the important militant-held town of Souran.

If Souran is retaken, the SAA will reverse all gainst of the HTS-led forces made in northern Hama since the start of their March offensive.

    When HTS is fully kicked out of this Hama pocket, the real investigation of Khan Sheikhoun can begin. HTS has already started to alter evidence of the chemical attack there.
