On April 25, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Force carried out a series of airstrikes on positions of Hay’at Tahir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the villages and towns of Kafr Zita, al-Lataminah, Husrayiah, al-Zakah, al-Jaysat, al-Sakher, Tell Huwash in the northenr Hama countryside, according to a report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
The SOHR added that the Russian Aerospace Force had also targeted few positions of HTS and its allies in the southern Idlib countryside, mainly around the villages and towns of Hursh Abden, Hbit and al-Tahta.
According to Syrian pro-government sources, HTS and its allies are currently planning to launch a new attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama.
The last attack by HTS and its allies in northern Hama was on March 14. Back then, the SAA and the Russian Aerospace Forces repelled the attack killing more than 90 fighters of HTS and the FSA within 24 hours.
HTS and its allies may be planning to launch the new attack in northern Hama in order distract their supporters from their recent defeats in Damascus governorate, where they lost most of their positions.
