The Syrian Army, backed by allied popular defense forces, continued their advance on Daesh terrorists in the eastern part of Hama province capturing a number of hilltops along a strategic highway, Iran’s Fars news agency reported on Friday.

"The Syrian army troops in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) continued their advance towards the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway, capturing several ISIL-held small hilltops," the Army said in a statement.

Syrian armed forces are now in a position to expand their control over the eastern part of Hama province and eventually advance on the de facto Daesh capital of Raqqa.
