Syrian Army captures first town located northwest of Khan Sheikhoun
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their advance in southern Idlib on Thursday, seizing another town from the jihadist rebels near the key city of Khan Sheikhoun.

According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces captured the town of Madaya after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
.

Following the capture of Madaya, the Syrian Army worked to secure the town, while clearing several mines and IEDs that were left behind by the jihadists.

As a result of this advance on Thursday, the Syrian Army has established their first presence at the northwestern flank of Khan Sheikhoun.
