Armed rebels committed another heinous crime in Syria on Tuesday and slaughtered all the members of a defenseless family, including several children and women.
The terrorists shot at and killed a couple and their two children in cold blood in their car while they were traveling on Hama-Aleppo road today.
Meantime, the residents of a village in Reef (outskirts of) Idlib in Northwestern Syria were forced to flee the region due to the heavy terrorist attacks.
The army killed 13 terrorists in the clashes in Reef Idlib and three civilians were also killed in the crossfire between the armed rebels and the army.
The terrorists forced the residents of Murk region in Idlib province to flee their homes.
FNA dispatches said the terrorists used thermal rockets against the Syrian army in the same region. Tens of terrorists and several army troops were killed during the clashes in Idlib on Tuesday, the dispatches added.
Terrorists have tried hard in the last several days to make Syrian cities unsafe for citizens, but the army has purged them from most neighborhoods and districts, killed tens of them and arrested many others.
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.
