The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and their allies reportedly captured the village of Al-Iskenderiyah after launching a counter-attack against Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise in Syria) in northern Hama.
That was reported by www.almasdarnews.com.
In addition to seizing Al-Iskenderiyah, the Syrian Armed Forces have managed to clear much of the area around Ma’ardes, leaving a small pocket of resistance at the outskirts of this small town.
Not all reports from Hama have been uplifting; in fact, ground activists in the province are reporting that a massacre took place at a village recently captured by the jihadist rebels.
According to these local ground activists, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jund Al-Aqsa reportedly executed over 90 civilians (unverified) in the town of Souran, making this the last largest massacre to take place in the Hama Governorate since the Ma’an massacre in 2014.
