Syria Army announces liberation of new areas in Homs, Hama
Damascus, The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced that the armed forces, in cooperation with the allied forces, cleared a sprawling area of 1,200 square kilometers in northern Homs and Hama's southern countryside.
The army has restored security and stability to 65 towns and villages which were controlled by terrorist organizations who were forced to exit the area after turning over their heavy and medium weapons.
The surrendered weapons included tanks, Shilka vehicles, BMPs, rocket-launchers, various rockets, cannons machineguns and other weapons and equipment.
The General Command said in a statement on Wednesday that clearing Homs and Hama countryside of terrorists is an achievement whose significance is reflected in the uprooting of the armed terrorism from the Central region which constitutes a traffic node connecting the Syrian provinces, in addition to liberating the dams of al-Rastan and al-Houla and ending the terrorist threat to sensitive and strategic facilities such as al-Zara power plant.
