BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) managed to foil another attempt by the Islamist rebels to infiltrate the government’s positions in northern Hama this week.
Led by their Jaysh Al-Izza faction, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) attempted to sneak past the Syrian Arab Army’s lines at the Al-Zalaqiyat Checkpoint near the town of Al-Lataminah.
However, Jaysh Al-Izza’s attempt to infiltrate the Syrian Army’s lines was once again repelled by the latter after local scouts caught the militants moving towards the government areas.
According to a military report from Hama, the Syrian Army opened fire on the militants near the Al-Zalaqiyat Checkpoint, forcing them to quickly disperse after suffering a number of casualties.
Jaysh Al-Izza has now tried to infiltrate the Syrian Army’s positions on two different attempts, including a botched attack on Tuesday.
