Syrian army regains control of strategic town of Soran near Hama city
Most of the rebels had retreated from the town after troops stormed it following dozens of strikes by Russian jets.
The air strikes also hit other towns in the area, including Latamneh and Kafr Zeita.
Meanwhile, the evacuation of more than three thousand Syrian s from four areas as part of a population transfer has been postponed.
The transfer deal involves residents of the pro-government villages of Foua and Kfarya and the opposition-held towns of Madaya and Zabadani.
