Hama, SANA – Units of the army and armed forces repelled an attack which terrorists from various groups, including Jabhat al-Nusra, launched against al-Kaffat village in Salamiyeh area, east of the central Hama province.
According to a military source, terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra and the so-called “Ahrar al-Sham” and “Suqour al-Sham” groups tried to infiltrate the village using two car bombs.
The army units, however, destroyed the cars, which were packed with large amounts of explosives, after monitoring them near a military post at the village’s entrance.
The soldiers also clashed with the infiltrating terrorists, leaving scores of them dead and others wounded.
The terrorists, according to the sources, came from the direction of al-Mubarakat village, north of al-Kaffat, where members of the abovementioned terrorist groups are highly active.
Not only in al-Mubarakat, but also in the entire al-Salamiyeh countryside and beyond towards the southern countryside of Idleb province, terrorists have been attacking locals and perpetrating the ugliest forms of atrocities.
Later, Governor of Hama Ghassan Khalaf visited the village and hailed the bravery of the Syrian army members in repelling the attack and defending the residents.
