The Syrian army troops retook the Hamka hill in Idlib province from the Takfiri militants on Monday, Al-Alam News Network reports.

The army regained control over Hamka hill in Idlib countryside. A group of terrorists were killed, and militants' machinegun-equipped vehicles and mortar launchers were also destroyed in the operation.

Meanwhile, the army destroyed terrorists’ hideouts, concentration centers, weapons and munition depots, and vehicles in Tal Salmo, al-Ter’a, Oum Jireen, Abu al-Duhour, Sallet al-Zuhour, Jannet al-Qura, Ariha, al-Kafir, and al-Mintar in Idlib countryside.

A large group of the terrorists were killed in the operations.

Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 230,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
