The Syrian army killed tens of armed rebels, including a terrorist commander, in Reef (outskirts of) Idlib on Monday.
Commander of the terrorist group Dara al-Shomal, Mohammad Nasr Haj Ibrahim and tens of other terrorists were killed during heavy clashes with the army troops in the outskirts of Idlib today.
Meantime, the Syrian army repelled the attack of armed rebels at a military check post in Moamareh al-Naman in Northern Reef Idlib, and killed 35 armed rebels in the area.
The army also repelled a terrorist attack on a military checkpoint on Ariha town in Reef Idlib, and killed at least 10 armed rebels.
Terrorists have tried hard in the last few months to make Syrian cities unsafe, specially for citizens, but the army has purged them from most neighborhoods and districts, killed hundreds of them and arrested many more.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.
Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.
The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
In October 2011, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of increasing unrests in Syria.
