The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) announced the recapture of the strategic town of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province, on Thursday.
Footage shot on Friday reveals derelict buildings and deserted streets in the town with soldiers and military hardware on its outskirts.
“After being pressured by the terrorist groups, who threatened to kill us, we were forced out of the town… they robbed us and burnt our houses, they did not leave anything for us, but we are returning now and happy,” said a resident of Khan Sheikhoun.
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) the towns of Latamina, Kafar Zita, Latmin, Morek, M’aerkaba, and al-Lahaya in Hama’s northern countryside are now under the SAA’s control.
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.
