BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) foiled yet another attempt by the militant forces to infiltrate their positions in northern Hama.
According to a field report, the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Jaysh Al-Izza faction attempted to sneak past the Syrian Arab Army’s military post near the town of Al-Zalaqiyat on Saturday before they were spotted by local scouts.
The Syrian Arab Army then opened fire on the Islamist rebels after they were seen moving south from the Jaysh Al-Izza stronghold of Al-Latamnah.
With their positions exposed to the Syrian Arab Army’s machine gunners, the Islamist rebels were forced to retreat back to Al-Latamnah after they suffered a number of casualties.
Since the attack by Jaysh Al-Izza, the Syrian Arab Army has unleashed a flurry of surface-to-surface missiles on their positions in the towns of Zakat and Al-Latamnah.
