MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. Assault units of the Syrian military with support from the Russian Aerospace Force within a few recent days have provided full control over the opposing heights near Hisayah and es-Savannet, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday.
"Due to the successful operation of the Syrian military, the last route the militants used for supplies of weapons, ammunition and other assets near Akerbat is under the fire control of the Syrian military," the Russian military said.

In the attempts to flee the encircled town of Akerbat in Hama countryside, the terrorists in small groups take cars, buses and armored vehicles to head for Deir ez-Zor, which for IS (Islamic State - outlawed in Russia) after the defeat of Iraq's Mosul remains the last big stronghold in Syria.
