Syrian Arab Army (SAA) officials reported the recapturing of the strategic town of Khan Sheikhoun in the southern countryside of Idlib province on Thursday.
"Following the initiation of the military operation covering the northern countryside of Hama and moving towards the villages of southern countryside of Idlib, the Syrian Arab Army forces have entered the town of Khan Sheikhoun." A lieutenant in the Syrian Arab Army said.
The SAA resumed military operations in Hama and Idlib provinces earlier this month, accusing militants of failing to abide by the conditions of a ceasefire declared on August 1.
