According to the latest field report from the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Army’s death toll is estimated between 30-40, as the remains of Syrian soldiers continue to be located around the town of Al-Tanjarah.
The high death toll in northwestern Hama makes last night’s attack by the Al-Qaeda-linked “Rouse the Believers” operation room to be the deadliest in the past two months.
A source from the SAA said that the attack began when the jihadists managed to slip behind the Syrian Army’s lines to ambush dozens of soldiers at Al-Tanjara.
Most of the soldiers that deployed there were killed before the jihadist rebels slipped back to their lines in the northern region of the Al-Ghaab Plain.
Since this attack, the Syrian Arab Army has been launching nonstop artillery and missile strikes on the jihadist positions, with some reports even indicating a pending operation.
