Rebel factions have controlled a large area in the countryside of Hama as they reached the outskirts of Hama's military airbase and got close to the neighborhood of Bazo in the northern part of the city. On the other hand, Damascus is witnessing attack and retreat battles amidst a violent campaign by the Russian air force in order to stop the attack of the rebel factions in the capital after a huge failure of the defense lines of regime forces and their allied militias.
The rebels have also controlled the road of Hama-Mhardah and are about to control the road of Hama-Missyaf and those are the main supply roads of regime forces and their thuggery militias. Moreover, the rebel factions in the northern countryside of Homs are working on distracting regime forces by fighting them on the road connecting al-Salamiyah with Homs.
The battles of Damascus are hectic in the eastern neighborhoods of the city as al-Rahman Legion and Hay'at Tarhir al-Sham along with other factions have managed to break the defense lines of regime forces and stormed into al-Abbassiyien neighborhood and the industrial region in al-Qaboun and put the strategical roads of Faris Khouri and al-Addawi under their fire control. To cover up the regime's failure, the Russian air force has been launching more than 20 airstrikes a day on a narrow geographical area. The rebels, on the other hand, have set an ambush for the Shiite militias advancing on al-Abbassyien bus terminal, in which they afflicted huge losses on them.
Back To Hama's battle, Field sources confirmed that the rebels have managed to storm into the town of Qamhanah after breaking the defense lines of Assad's forces and their allied militias, but they couldn't seize control over it because the regime has used civilians as human shields.
