By the evening of May 7, all counter-attacks launched by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies in northwestern Hama had been repelled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. Thus, pro-government troops kept all the positions, which they had liberated during a swift attack on May 6.
Despite this, the SAA has not been able to develop its initial success and to push further into the militant-held area. An attempt to advance in the direction of Kafr Nabuda has been repelled by militants.
If no major offensive actions are undertaken by the SAA and its allies in the nearest future, the frontline in this area would stabelize once again and the situation would return to a reltative calm with constant artillery duels.
