The Syrian army and other pro-government factions have regained control of the town of Kawkab from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its allies in the northern countryside of Hama, the Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported, citing a military source.

The same reports appeared in pro-militant sources, including the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The town of Kawkab was seized by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-led forces earlier this week after militants launched their large-scale advance in the area.

The liberation of this town indicates that the joint militant forces are losing momentum in northern Hama and government forces have chances to regain the initiative in this battle.
