BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – Fierce clashes broke out this evening in northwestern Hama after the Syrian Arab Army attempted to advance at the Qal’at Al-Madiq axis.

According to a military source in the town of Mhardeh, the Syrian Arab Army attempted to bypass the militant positions and score an advance at this front near the Idlib Governorate axis.

No advance has been reported as of yet; however, a source told Al-Masdar that this is likely just a preliminary offensive to test the defenses of the militant forces.

Prior to this attack, the militants infiltrated the Syrian military’s positions south of Qal’at Al-Madiq, killing several soldiers in the process.

More of these skirmishes are expected to take place in the coming days as the Syrian Arab Army continues to test the militant defenses around the demilitarized zone.

Update (9:40 P.M.) – A Source from the National Defense Forces denied any advance made. The source said clashes occurred, but were limited to just machine gun fire and artillery shells
