Military source: A large number of " al-Nusra Front" terrorists attacked army units stationed south and southeast of Idlib

Units of the Syrian Arab Army operating in the Idlib countryside clashed today with terrorist groups that attacked military posts in the liberated countryside of Ma`rat al-Numan.

A military source told SANA that al-Nusra Front terrorists launched a violent attack at dawn today.

The source added that the terrorists were able, through the use of various types of weapons including booby-trapped vehicles and under a heavy fire cover, to penetrate some of the army's positions in the direction of Al-Teh-Abu Harif-alSamaka.


The army units redeployed and worked very efficiently to contain the attack and prevent the terrorists from continuing with it, the source said.

The source pointed out that the clashes are still continuing with terrorists of the Al-Nusra Front organization and the rest of the terrorist organizations affiliating to it along the lines of contact.

The army units operating in the Idlib countryside responded on Wednesday to the terrorist organizations' attacks on the safe areas, killing and wounding many in their ranks and destroying several missile launchers.
