Backed by Russian air strikes, the Syrian army has recaptured the strategic town of Soran in the central part of western Syria.

 

 

Most of the rebels have retreated from the town after troops stormed it, following dozens of strikes believed to be from Russian jets in the early hours of the morning.

 

Soran is a key point on the army’s route to the city of Hama.
