Syrian Army Assisted by Unidentified Fighters against Terrorists in Hama
The Arabic section of Russian Sputnik news agency reported that unidentifiable fighters and groups supported the Syrian army in the battle.
“The Syrian troops tried to identify their unknown allies but couldn’t,” the report said.
The first time that these unknown forces helped the Syrian army was in Hama province in the residential area of Kafr Nabouda during which they used snipers.
These unknown forces often fire at the terrorists from their cars or launch rapid attacks against them and leave the scene, sometimes in shooting sprees.
Analysts say they are White Shroud groups that merely target the terrorists but no official report has yet confirmed the speculation.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, the terrorist groups suffered major casualties and their military hardware sustained heavy damage after their positions in Northern Homs and Eastern Hama came under attack by the Syrian Army troops.
The army’s artillery and missile units targeted the bases and positions of Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) and Ahrar al-Sham in the town of al-Rastan and in the villages of Deir Foul and al-Za’afaraniyeh in Northern Homs, killing at least five militants and destroying their bases.
In the meantime, the army men clashed with ISIL terrorists in Oil Line Heights Southeast of the city of al-Salamiyah in the Eastern countryside of Hama and meantime targeted their positions with artillery, leaving a number of them dead or wounded.
Also, unknown assailants attacked the positions of terrorists of Jeish al-Tahrir-Free Syrian Army in the town of Kafr Naboudeh in Northern Hama, killing at least 10 of them.
