Al-Nusra Front Moves Militants into Northwestern Hama, Prepares for Attack: Russia
Mon Mar 21, 2016 14:04:04

The Russian military said on Monday that the Al-Nusra terrorist group has begun to amass a large number of fighters in the Hama Province.

According to the latest reports released by the Russian military at the Hmeimim Airfields, military sources in the Latakia province believe that the al-Nusra is planning a large-scale offensive to reclaim much of the Hama province’s Northwestern regions from the Syrian Army forces.

In the past, they have had limited success, especially in their storms on the Christian towns of Suqaylabiyah and Mhardeh.

Since al-Nusra retreated from most of the territory they controlled inside Latakia province in the last 6 months, they have been able to preserve a lot of fighters along the Idlib and Hama areas bordering with Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains); FNA reported.
