Syria: Soldiers Continue to Tighten Noose on Terrorists in Eastern Hama.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army troops stormed ISIL's defense lines heavily in Eastern Hama on Wednesday, extending the range of their advances in two more regions and tightening the noose on ISIL terrorists.

The army men managed to take back the village of Jubb al-Abyadh and the town of Tayebeh Dakij East of the town of al-Salamiyah after they pushed terrorists back from the town of al-Tayebeh.

Also, the Russian and Syrian fighter jets pounded ISIL's movements and positions in the regions of Akash, Um Meil, Abu Jabilat, Aqayrabat, Northern al-Qastal, Southern al-Qastal and Central al-Qastal om Eastern Hama, inflicting heavy casualties on the terrorists.

Field sources, meantime, reported that ISIL has transferred a number of its militants to Northern and Southern al-Qastal regions to kill any chances for defection or surrender to the army by militants.

Relevant reports said on Tuesday that the army men clashed with ISIL and drove them out of the town of al-Tayebeh and several positions overlooking Abu Hakfah hill, East of Tal (hill) al-Albawi in Eastern Hama.

A military source said that ISIL lost a number of militants in the army attack, adding that the army has tightened noose on the terrorists in Eastern Hama.
