Clashes continued between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and militants in the Hama countryside on Wednesday, as the government forces advanced into villages near the town of Al-Tamanah.

Footage shows heavy fighting and clouds of smoke rising after shelling.

The SAA resumed military operations in Hama and Idlib provinces earlier this month, accusing the militants of failing to abide by the conditions of a ceasefire declared on August 1.
