Also on Monday, the Syrian army once again repelled large-scale attack by terrorist groups on a strategic power plant in Hama province.
Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) and Ahrar al-Sham targeted al-Zara power plant in the Southern countryside of Hama city with a number of rocket shells, causing a huge material damage.
An informed source said that the terrorists attacked al-Zara power plant in an attempt to enter and establish control over it, but units of the Syrian army in the vicinity of the plant foiled the attack and killed a number of the militants.
The source added that the terrorists fired a number of rocket shells on the plant during the attack causing a huge material damage to one of the generators.
Syrian army soldiers in recent months have frequently repulsed numerous assaults of the terrorist groups on the power plant.
Pro-government forces on late May managed to end siege on key power plant of Hama province, taking full control over it after days of fierce clashes with militants in the region.
