Syrian army recaptures towns, villages in Hama

Syrian government forces and their allies recapture several towns and villages in Hama province, pushing back militants who had made significant advances in the area in recent weeks.

Lebanon’s Al Manar TV said the Syrian army seized towns or villages including al-Talisiya, al-Qahira and Tel al-Usud on Saturday.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights which is sympathetic to militants confirmed the news.

Foreign-backed militants launched a massive attack in Hama at the end of August, capturing a series of towns and villages.
