The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) is playing an instrumental role in the battle for Syria as air raids are continuously conducted deep behind enemy lines, thereby often obstructing rebel offensives before they even begin.

As the SyAAF conducted numerous sorties over the northern Hama countryside today, the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) ‘Central Division’ published a statement noting that six of its fighters, including a local commander, were “martyred” due to a Syrian airstrike on the town of Kafr Zita.

The names of the FSA militants, three of whom were brothers, include:
– Tareq Khattab
– Khattab Mohammad Khattab
– Jadu’ Ahmad Khattab
– Mohammad Khaled Hamadi
– Ayman Al-Faraj
– Fayez Al-Khaled

Other rebel factions did not specify their losses due to Tuesday’s airstrikes.

The frontline in northern Hama has been locked in a stalemate over the past month, largely due to the SAA’s Tiger Forces redeploying much of their personnel to Aleppo city.
