DAMASCUS, Apr. 23 (MNA) – According to a source, Syrian Army eliminated a major terrorists' outpost in the northern part of the Syrian province of Hama.

A military source declared that security and stability were restored to Halfaya town and to a number of the neighboring villages in the northern countryside of Hama central province after destroying the last gatherings of Jabhat al-Nusra in them.

The source told SANA that army units, in cooperation with the backing forces, carried out intensive operations against Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists, restoring security and stability to the towns and villages of Halfayia, Zalin, al-Wabida, Btaish, Zour al-Nasiryia and Zour Abu Zaid, and establishing control over Talet al-Nasiryia and Tal al-Mintar.

The source added that hundreds of terrorists were killed and injured and scores fled away leaving their arms behind them as the army seized 7 mortar launchers, two machinegun-equipped vehicles and a huge amount of varied ammunition.

As the Russian Defense Ministry reported previously, the number of inhabited areas, which have been liberated by the Syrian troops from the ISIL armed formations since January 1, has reached 228.

The number of armed formations, which had promised to observe the ceasefire regime in accordance with the Reconciliation Agreement dating February 27, 2016, remained 143.

The nationwide Syrian ceasefire regime was introduced on December 30, 2016, with Russia and Turkey as its guarantors. The UN Security Council passed a resolution in December supporting the effort. The ceasefire in Syria excludes terrorists operating in the country.
