Syrian troops pushed their way into a northwestern militant-held enclave Wednesday, clashing with them and capturing a strategically located village at the southern edge, widening an offensive that had previously involved mainly aerial bombings and shelling.

In further details, Syria’s Central Military Media said the troops entered Kafr Nbouda, a militant-held village on the southwestern edge of the enclave, igniting heavy clashes with them. The CMM said the Syrian troops seized control of Kafr Nbouda after hours of fighting and began clearing it of land mines. This is the most serious challenge yet to a cease-fire in the region brokered by Russia and Turkey in September.

Capturing Kafr Nbouda severs the link between the southern edge of the militant-held enclave in Hama province with its western and eastern flanks, as well farther to the north.
