The civilian-led “National Defense Forces” (NDF) caught the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” off-guard on the road to Tal ‘Abdel-‘Aziz, laying a powerful ambush on the Islamist fighters just north of the town of Saboura in the Hama Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a military source, the National Defense Forces ambush on the encroaching Jabhat Al-Nusra militants resulted in the death of 9 enemy combatants, including the following identified fighters: ‘Alaa Harba, ‘Ammar Hassan Hamid, Karam Hassan Hamid, and Mu’atiz Al-Sheikh Mohammad.

On the Homs-Hama border, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured a weapons supply truck that belonged to Jabhat Al-Nusra traveling from Lebanon to the Hama Governorate in order to resupply their entrenched Islamist fighters combatting the Syrian Armed Forces inside the southern part of the province.

The Syrian Arab Army soldiers stopped the vehicle at a nearby checkpoint, when the driver attempted to slip past the soldiers; this prompted the checkpoint’s guards to inspect the vehicle.

Upon inspecting the vehicle, the SAA checkpoint guards discovered a large cache of rockets, mortar shells, anti-aircraft machine guns, ammunition, and assault rifles; these contents were all seized by the guards after they arrested the two men transporting these weapons from Lebanon.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAA) was busy on Thursday, targeting large agglomerations of Islamist combatants in the cities of Kafr Zita, Al-Lataminah, and Khan Sheikhoun on the border of the Hama and Idlib Governorates.
