Syrian warplanes destroyed a militant convoy northeast of the newly-captured town of Kafr Nabudah in the northern Hama countryside in the afternoon of May 26.
“The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) destroyed a convoy of terrorist groups’ vehicles that was heading from Khan Shaykhun towards the town of Hobait,” a military source told the Syrian al-Watan newspaper.
Pro-government activists said that the convoy consisted of at least six pick-up trucks armed with heavy machine guns, while local sources reported that several militants were killed.
Few hours ahead of the aerial attack, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recaptured Kafr Nabudah in a surprise operation that last for four hours only. Dozens of militants were reported killed, injured or captured.
The SyAAF and the Russian Aerospace Forces played a key role in the success of the ongoing Syrian military operation. Hundreds of militants were reportedly killed or injured in northern Hama and southern Idlib over the last few days as a result of Syrian and Russian airstrikes.
