The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued its offensive against Jabhat al-Nusra fighters camped out at Al-Shariyah airstrip in Hama.

Footage filmed on Tuesday shows explosions rising in the distance from purported SAA artillery fire. The video also shows soldiers loyal to the government observing the shelling through binoculars and other artillery spotting equipment. Helicopters and planes were also seen flying above the area.

The SAA began operations against Jabhat al-Nusra in the provinces of Hama and Idlib, after the group allegedly broke the ‘de-escalation’ zone agreement by launching rocket attacks on villages in designated safe zones.
