106 troops from Hama killed in December: activists
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 106 troops and militiamen from Hama province were killed in December, according to pro-regime social media activists.

The troops had been killed by Daesh (ISIS), FSA, and Tahrir al-Sham in Deir Ezzor, Eastern Ghouta suburbs, Hama and Idlib provinces.

Most of the slain troops were from Mesyaf and Salamiya towns.  The death toll included 27 officers.

The Alawites-dominated areas still the main manpower supply for Bashar al-Assad's regime. The mourning posters and statements have been sweeping the streets and pro-regime social media.

More than 119,000 pro-regime forces have been killed, including 62,000 troops, tens of thousands of loyalist militiamen, and 1,556 fighters from Hezbollah, according to a new estimate by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The regime forces, backed by Russian air force and Iranian-backed militias, have stepped up its offensive on Idlib and Hama provinces, pushing to take major rebel stronghold in Syria.

The Assad troops are pushing north from a corner of the adjacent province of Hama, as well as from Aleppo province to Idlib's east. They have seized around 40 towns and villages across the three provinces in recent weeks, according to AFP.

Since the "de-escalation zone" deal went into effect in May, hundreds of children have been killed and wounded in Idlib and Hama. But after almost five months of calm, fighters loyal to Bashar al-Assad have ramped up operations to reach Idlib.
