The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued its push into militant-held areas in Hama Governate, as shown in footage filmed near the villages of al-Jayyid, Sharanaz, al- Hawija and al-Hawash in the country’s north-west on Monday.

Several tanks, rockets and snipers were deployed in a bid to fully control the region which still harbours pockets of armed militants.

In recent weeks the SAA has managed to gain ground throughout the governate’s towns and villages.
