On Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 11th Tank Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) carried out a raid on an Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) hideout near the city of Salamiyya in the Hama Governorate, killing scores of militants and seizing the contents inside the building, while also capturing 5 supply trucks stocked with a number of foreign goods.

According to an SAA source, the 5 supply trucks that were seized by the 11th Tank Division contained a number of boxes that originated from Saudi Arabia that also read “food aid” – inside the boxes were first-aid kits, 40 grad rockets, 20 mortar shells, 23mm machine gun ammunition, 14 half barrels filled with C-4 explosives, 3 mortar launchers, and satellite televisions.

The source further added that this is not the first time the SAA and NDF have confiscated these type of goods; it is common for these supply trucks to enter Syria from the Turkish border in order to resupply militant fighters combatting the Syrian Arab Army.

Some of the militants killed at the hideout were also members of Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham (Falcons of the Levant Brigade) – they are a large militia in the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya). A total of 19 militants were killed during the firefight, including a fighter identified as Mohammad ‘Anwar Al-‘Issa from the Idlib Governorate.
