On Friday, Syrian government forces have pushed terrorists from the strategically important Abu Dali settlement in Hama province. Abu Dali is located at the traffic crossroads connecting several provinces. The militants, in turn, used this settlement as a distribution point on the supply route between the provinces of Hama and Idlib.

Syria has been engulfed in a civil war since 2011, with the government forces fighting numerous opposition factions and terrorist groups.
