Syria: Syrian Army secures Morek as ground offensive continues

156 29.10.2015 Инфо

Fighting between the Syrian Arab Army and militant groups continued around the outskirts of the Syrian town of Morek, in Hama Province, Wednesday. Syrian army forces shelled militant positions before advancing with infantry troops on the ground to secure the surrounding area. The strategically important town was almost entirely gutted during fighting between government and rebel forces in spring 2014. The town is now filled with ruined buildings following months of mortar, heavy machine gun, and small arms fire. The Syrian Arab Army, supported by extensive Russian airstrikes, continues to make gains on the ground throughout Syria this week, including in the provinces of Hama and Idlib.
