Last night, the Syrian army and the National DefenseForces (NDF) recaptured the strategic town of Ma’an and the nearby village of Kubbariyah in the northern part of Hama province.

Ma’an had been one of the major towns (others are Taibat al-Imam, Al-Lataminah and Kfar Zitam) strategically located near the M4 highway and captured by the joint forces of Jund al-Aqsa, Ahrar al-Sham, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army in the province.

By now, Ma’an is the most important success of the ongoing counter-offensive of the pro-government forces.

The operation was launched amid infighting between the terrorist groups on October 7 and, by October 10, it has succeed in recapturing a bulk of villages and towns at the eastern flank of M4.
