Syrian Army Dispatches More Troops to Hama Battlefields
The Syrian Army dispatched more troops to the battlefields near al-Ghaab plains to confront the terrorist groups’ recent movements there.
The army’s special forces, who were deployed near Palmyra (Tadmur) in Homs province, were sent to the neighboring province of Hama to join the pro-government forces’ anti-terrorism front there.
Military sources said that the army and its allies are planning to launch a large-scale operation in al-Ghaab plain in the coming days.
Reports said on Monday that terrorist groups failed in their attack on government forces’ strongholds in al-Ghaab plains after a powerful counterattack by the Syrian Army that enjoyed massive Russian and Syrian air support.
The terrorist groups of al-Nusra Front, Jund al-Aqsa and non-Syrian Turkistani and Chechen fighters stormed the government forces’ positions near Kherbet al-Naqous and al-Hakoureh regions in al-Ghaab plains in the Northwestern part of Hama province, but their attacks were repelled by the Syrian soldiers.
The terrorist groups, as usual, launched their attacks by running suicide-cars towards the army positions, but the Syrian army targeted them with anti-armor missiles before reaching to its positions.
Simultaneous with the failure of terrorists’ suicide-attacks, hundreds of the militants stormed the army men’s positions.
The Syrian and Russian fighter jets played very crucial role in defeating the terrorist groups’ offensives in al-Mansoureh, Tal Waset and Eastern part of Kherbet al-Naqous.
The terrorist groups left behind tens of the dead or inured members and fled the battlefront.
