Syrian Army Intensifies Strikes against al-Nusra Terrorists in the Countryside of Hama, Idleb

IDLEB/HAMA, (ST)- The Syria Arab army continued on Tuesday its military operations against Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization and its affiliated groups in Hama northern countryside and Idleb southern countryside, killing a number of terrorists.

The army units deployed in Sekik village and Tal Sekik area engaged in fierce clashes with terrorist groups in Tal Tar'i area, located between al-Taman'a town in Idleb countryside and Morek in Hama countryside. The clashes resulted in heavy losses upon the terrorists, according to SANA reporter.

The clashes were accompanied by concentrated rocket and artillery shelling on the terrorist groups' movement axes and supply routes in the vicinity of al-Taman'a, the reporter said.

 The shelling cut off the support provided by other terrorist groups and forced the terrorists in the targeted areas to flee toward Khan Sheikhoun town, one of the biggest terrorist strongholds in Idleb southern countryside, added the reporter.

At the same time, the army engineering units have completed mopping up operations in Sekik village and Tal Sekik hiarea which were liberated by the army from terrorists two days ago.

In Hama northern countryside, a number of terrorists were killed. Their hideouts, rocket launchers and equipments were destroyed by  the Syrian army's shelling of the positions and fortifications of Jabhat al-Nusra and al-Izza Brigades in Kafr Zeta and al-Latamneh areas.
