The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 5th Assault Corps’ ISIS Hunters are storming the ISIS-held town of Uqayribat in the eastern Hama countryside.
According to the ISIS Hunters media wing, government forces have already entered the town and captured few buildings.
Yesterday, the 5th Assault Corps started pre-emptive shelling of the town preparing a push to re-take it from ISIS.

Uqayribat is a key ISIS strong point in the ISIS-held area in eastern Hama. If it falls into the hands of government forces, the ISIS defense will collapse across the entire pocket.
