Syrian troops kill 100 militants during operations in Hama
The Syrian army has regained control of several militant-held villages in Syria’s western-central province of Hama.
According to military sources on Tuesday, Syrian tanks pushed the foreign-backed militants out of the villages located around the town of Maardas and the Bteish area in the province’s northern country side.
During the operations, over 70 Jaish al-Fateh terrorists were killed and large numbers of their armored vehicles and cannons were destroyed
Syrian troops also thwarted several terrorist attacks on the towns of Maan and Kafraa, killing some 30 more militants and destroying a number of their tanks and vehicles.
Earlier, Syrian air force jets destroyed several militant command posts and armored vehicles and killed scores of terrorists during multiple raids on Hama’s countryside.
Over the last few weeks, Syrian forces have been making vast gains in and around the province, located 213 kilometers (132 miles) north of Damascus, which is partially controlled by groups backed by Jaish al-Fateh and the so-called Free Syrian Army militants.
