Locals Kill more than 50 Terrorists in Syria
Residents of a central Syrian town confronted foreign-backed insurgents attempting to intrude into their territory, killing and wounding more than 50 terrorists.
The locals of the town of Taibet al-Emam in the countryside of the central province of Hama confronted insurgents from the Al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, killing and wounding 50 of their forces, said the official SANA news agency.
Al-Nusra Front terrorists have been committing repeated acts of kidnapping and looting in the Arab country.
Meanwhile, the news agency said that militants fired mortar shells at the town of Muhardeh also in Hama, injuring many people and causing huge property losses. The incidents in Hama came as part of broader violence that has continued in Syria on Saturday.
Militants’ mortar shelling continued on Saturday, slamming into several districts of the capital Damascus, namely Fahameh, Adawi, Tabbaleh, Jaramana, Malki and the Umayyad Square in central Damascus.
The Syria military said its troops on Saturday thwarted the militants’ attack on several military posts in the Southern province of Quneitra, killing and injuring undisclosed number of the assailants.
The military also killed many militants when the troops foiled another attack against military posts in the coastal town of Kasab, where intense battles are currently ongoing between the Syrian troops and the armed insurgent groups.
