Syrian Army destroys terrorists’ base in demilitarized zone after militants’ attack

FNA – The Syrian Army’s artillery units pounded and destroyed terrorists’ base in Northern Hama after they came under attack from the demilitarized zone on Monday.

The artillery units, deployed in the village of al-Moqir North of the town of Mahardah, launched a heavy shelling on a joint base of Ahrar al-Sham and the National Liberation Front in Tal al-Sakhar after the terrorist groups targeted the army from the demilitarized zone in Northern Hama.

All the terrorists at the base were killed and the base itself was destroyed in the attack.

In the meantime, other units of the army repelled terrorists’ offensive from Ma’arkabah in the demilitarized zone in Northern Hama, inflicting major casualties on the terrorists.

Also, other artillery units shelled terrorists’ positions West of the town of Souran and destroyed their military hardware after militants attacked the government forces’ positions near the village of al-Masasanah.

Militant-affiliated sources reported last week that the Ankara-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) started preparing its gunmen to counter any possible attack by the Syrian Army troops in the Northern part of the country amid other terrorists’ provocative measures in the demilitarized zone in Idlib, Hama, Aleppo and Lattakia provinces.

The sources disclosed that NLF Spokesman Naji Mustafa urged the group’s fighters to be on alert to counter the army’s possible operation in Northern Syria.

In the meantime, military sources said that that the army forwarded a large number of forces and military equipment from the newly-freed regions in Southern Syria to Jabal al-Turkmen and the Northern part of al-Ghaab Plain.

Also, more army units left their bases in Southern Raqqa and Eastern Aleppo for contact lines with terrorists in Southern Aleppo, the sources said, adding that the army’s Tiger Forces and the 5th Division that ended their mission in Sweida Desert have been forwarded to al-Ghaab Plain, Northern Hama and Abu al-Dhohour in Southeastern Idlib.
