Hama Governor Qassan Khalaf disclosed on Tuesday that the Syrian army is paving the ground for seizing back the strategic towns of Taybat a-Imam and Halfaya in the Northern part of his province.
"After the terrorists seized control of the villages and farms in Northern Hama and displaced their residents, the Syrian army managed to recapture those regions and push back the militants; now the army units are readying to seize back Taybat al-Imam and Halfaya towns both of which are close to the city of Mahrada," Khalaf told FNA.
He noted that the terrorists have taken control of many regions in Northern Hama, including al-Kabariya, Ma'an, Khafsin, al-Talissiya, Ma'ardes and Souran.
Khalaf pointed to a terrorist attack which took place in the town of Ma'ardes, and said, "In terrorist blasts conducted by three suicide bombers in al-Asi square, one terrorist was killed and two others blew up themselves."
The Hama governor said that life is back to normal in Ma'ardes town.
