The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has repelled an attack by the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) near the town of al-Masasna in northern Hama, the country’s state-run news agency SANA reported on November 7.
The SANA claimed that some militants were killed or injured in the incident but provided no additional details.
Separately, the SAA artillery Artillery struck positions of mortars and rocket launchers belonging to militants in the village of Kherbet al-Naqous. These strikes were a response to the recent shelling of government targets in Sahl al-Ghab. It’s interesting that the Sahl al-Ghan shelling included the usage of rockets and TOW missiles by militants. This is another cofirmation of the repatedly stated fact that the so-called “armed opposition” does not comply with the terms of the de-militarization agreement.
