Syrian army regains key town in north Hama provinceThe Syrian army regained the strategic town of Soran near the city of Hama in the central part of western Syria on Sunday with an assault backed by heavy Russian air strikes, rebels and residents said. “There was hysterical bombing that targeted the town and the whole area and rebels fought fierce battles until they were forced to pull out,” said one rebel, a member of the Jaish al Izza group, which has a strong presence in Hama province who requested anonymity. The stronghold of Soran is the army’s northern gateway to the city of Hama, the provincial capital.
