BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The last strategic town under the control of the militant forces in northwestern Hama has been reportedly captured by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies.

According to reports, the Syrian Arab Army captured the key town of Qal’at Al-Madiq after the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies withdrew from the area.

Al-Masdar has reached out to a Syrian Army source to confirm the report; however, they said there has been no confirmation from their end, despite claims by pro-opposition media about the loss of the historical town.

If Qal’at Al-Madiq is indeed captured by the Syrian Arab Army, this would be a major blow to the opposition forces, as this historical town gave them the territorial advantage in northwestern Hama.

Lastly, the loss of Qal’at Al-Madiq for the rebels will only open a pathway to the militant-held areas in the Al-Ghaab Plain.

If true, excellent!
The SAA/RuAF make a great combination in rapidly removing rebels and jihadis from Syrian territory.

Let’s hope the damage done to the close nearby historical city of Apamea is limited. Maybe some information would be welcome.

And there is no “God”. All religions are at best fairy tales and often nothing else than scams.
