Syrian Army Withdraws from a Village in Hama Province
The government forces pulled out from al-Ramliyeh village in Southern Hama as a large number of terrorists from Faylaq al-Homs, Ansar al-Shariya, Badr 313 and Jeish al-Towhid attacked the military positions of the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces near Homs province.
The terrorist groups occupied the village after several hours of clashes with the Syrian government forces.
Earlier today, the Syrian Army troops engaged in fierce clashes with al-Shamiyeh Front after the terrorist group stormed the government forces’ positions in Eastern Hama.
Al-Shamiyeh Front targeted strongholds of National Defense Forces in Western side of al-Salamiyah near the village of Ramliyeh.
In the meantime, the Syrian fighter jets, for their part, carried out several combat flights over the terrorists’ defense lines and inflicted major damage on their military equipment.
In relevant developments in the province on Friday, the Army troops, tipped off by intelligence agents, disbanded a terrorist group carrying large volume of arms and ammunition heading towards Northern Hama.
“The five-members group of terrorists, carrying two thermal rockets, automatic rifles, grenades, RPG rounds and ammunition for PKC and 23 mm machineguns in their car, were driving on a road towards militant-held regions in Northern Hama,” the sources said, adding, “The Syrian soldiers stormed the group near the town of Masyaf, which ended in the killing of one the militants and arrest of the rest of them.”
