BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) caught another group of jihadist rebels making their way through the demilitarized zone en route to the government-held areas in northwest Hama last night.
According to a report from nearby Mhardeh, the Syrian Arab Army’s scouts monitored a group of jihadist rebels last night that were attempting to move towards their front-lines near the demilitarized zone.
The Syrian Arab Army quickly opened fire on these jihadist fighters, forcing them to abort their mission after sustaining a number of casualties.
Following this failed infiltration by the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Arab Army began firing several artillery shells and surface-to-surface missiles towards the jihadist defenses in southern Idlib and norther Haama.
The jihadist rebels then responded with a barrage of artillery shells that struck the Syrian military’s positions near the town of Khuwayn.
The total number of casualties between the two parties is still unknown at this time, as the hostilities are still ongoing.
