The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered on August 23 a large underground headquarters and a network of tunnels in the vicinity of the newly-captured town of Khan Shaykhun.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) released a video of the headquarters and the tunnels, which were reportedly used by militants of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and Jaysh al-Izza.
The SANA’s reporter in Hama said that the militants used the underground fortifications to take shelter from warplanes and to run their operations in the region.
“The tunnels include a series of operations room, which were used by the terrorist groups’ commanders to plan their criminal acts,” the reporter said.
Most of these fortified positions were built by the militants during the last Sochi ceasefire agreement, which took place between September of 2018 and April of this year.
