"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Major Move: Syrian Forces Retake Strategic Rebel Stronghold in Hama Province- Sputnik News

Damascus has recaptured a strategic town north of Hama, as it pushes Free Syrian Army militants beyond the province border.

The Syrian Army has taken the strategic town of Soran (Suran), north of Hama, regaining an outpost against Free Syrian Army militants.
The advance of forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was preceded by heavy bombardment by what is believed to be Russian Air Forces, supported by Iranian-backed Shia militants.
The report also mentioned heavy bombardment around Al Lataminah and Kafr Zayta, which together form a "peninsula" of  militant territory in Hama province. Should all of these towns, as well as the border town of Murak, be recaptured, the Syrian army will have its boots on the province borderline.
