The Syrian and Russian air forces are working overtime on Friday, hunting terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) that are using the Hama-Palmyra Highway (Highway 45) to travel back-and-forth from in order to resupply the northeastern Homs front.

According to a military source, the Syrian and Russian air forces have carried out 30+ airstrikes over the strategic villages of Abu Hanaya and ‘Aqayrbat in east Hama, targeting any ISIL movements around this terrorist heartland.

In addition to the airstrikes over this part of east Hama, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division is also making significant progress along this front, capturing several sites around Abu Hanaya village over the last two weeks.

The continued pressure on this area of the Hama Governorate is meant to obstruct ISIL’s network of supply routes from the Al-Raqqa; this is one of the ways they are able to constantly resupply the Palmyra countryside.
