DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:25 A.M.) – Up to 5 missiles fired from rebel-held areas in northern Hama province hit the Christian city of Mahardah and its power plant.
The absurd attack left no casualties with only minor material damage reported.
The rocket assault might – most probably – have spurred by vengeance for Ghouta offensive.
In response, the Syrian Army shelled – with artillery and rockets – rebel positions in the nearby villages of Latamneh, Kafr Zita, Al-Sakher and Al-Zakat; all serve as bastions for the FSA-affiliated Jaysh al-Izza rebel group.
The rebel aggression on Mahardah might as well propel the Russian jets to conduct retaliatory airstrikes against the attackers.
