Assad and Russian warplanes conducted at least 166 airstrikes on towns and villages of Hama northern countryside on Wednesday (August 7), Orient News correspondent said.

"86 airstrikes were conducted on Latamneh alone, while the other airstrikes were reported in Kafr Zita, al-Zaka and Sakher," Jamil al-Hasen said.

More than 1200 artillery shells were fired on the targetted areas, according to the Latamneh Youth Association said.
