Hama, Syria (10:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and their allies reportedly captured the village of Al-Iskenderiyah after launching a counter-attack against Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise in Syria) in northern Hama.

In addition to seizing Al-Iskenderiyah, the Syrian Armed Forces have managed to clear much of the area around Ma’ardes, leaving a small pocket of resistance at the outskirts of this small town.

Not all reports from Hama have been uplifting; in fact, ground activists in the province are reporting that a massacre took place at a village recently captured by the jihadist rebels.

According to these local ground activists, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jund Al-Aqsa reportedly executed over 90 civilians (unverified) in the town of Souran, making this the last largest massacre to take place in the Hama Governorate since the Ma’an massacre in 2014.

the right is when the Syrian army to withdraw from a city evacuate civilians as clear that Christians and Alawites will be guilty of cooperating with the government and then massacred.

Why would civilians remain in battlegrounds??? If the enemy is close and gaining on your settlement, why on Earth stay? When Hama is, what, a 10 minute drive away?

Rumours on the net that this massacre was caused by allied napalm bombing of the islamists, whose offensive has been stopped by an all-out bombing campaign. The islamists are overstretched and in danger of getting into a cauldron.
Civilians were supposedly hit by mistake.
