Syrian Army Cuts Off Key Militant Supply Line In Northern Hama

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) cut off a key militant supply line in the northern Hama countryside a few hours only after liberating the villages of al-Arbaeen and al-Zaka.

Syrian pro-government sources said that the supply line, which links the key towns of Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah, is now under the SAA’s fire control. Army units are reportedly targeting any militant that attempts to use the route.

“It [the SAA] is controlling the main route linking the two towns [Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah] by fire,” a Syrian military source said on August 7, according to Muraselon, a pro-government news outlet.

Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah are the hometowns of so-called Jaysh al-Izza, one of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) [al-Qaeda’s former branch in Syria] key allies in Greater Idlib.

Jaysh al-Izza, which received direct support from the U.S. between 2014 and 2017, could be witnessing its very last days, as the SAA is now preparing to storm both Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah.
