#Syria|Homs and Hama Countrysides|Rebels gain strategic grounds

The forces tried to advance on the fronts of the northern villages of Homs and southern Hama three days ago, but failed and suffered losses. Rebels moved from the defense to the attack, and managed to control three barriers outside of the village of Qubba alKurdi in the southern countryside of Hama.

Violent clashes lasted for hours between the factions and the regime forces in the region ended the liberation by the factions to the two checkpoints in the vicinity of the village who are situated on the hills surrounding the village. This means the village is under the rebels’ fire control. The control of those barriers are strategically important because it contributes to secure the outskirts of Qantara and Breighit and also secures the military roads, and stop the regime attacks toward Wadi al-Jessia, Breighit and the village of Qantara. This attack also prevented the regime forces to be concentrated inside the village, forcing them to gather outside and withdraw.  During this attack, dozens of elements of the regime’s forces and militias were killed and wounded during the operation, and they grabbed  1 mortar gunfield and 20 shells, 1 Toshka and individual arms and ammunitions.

This battle comes after another attempt by the regime to progress toward the eastern front of rural Hom and Southern Hama, as rebels inflicted the regime important human and material losses.
