Infiltration | Regime forces sneak to positions of “Jaysh Al-Nasr” in Sahl Al-Ghab, killing more than ten
Syrian Observatory activists say that a group of regime forces and loyalists sneaked to positions of “Jaysh Al-Nasr” operating under the banner of the “National Liberation Front” on Al-Ankawi frontlines in Sahl Al-Ghab in north-western Hama. According to SOHR sources, the regime infiltration operation, which took place in the early hours of Monday morning, left 11 fatalities among “Jaysh Al-Nasr”, before the regime group withdrew. The death toll is expected to rise as the attack left other rebels injured, some seriously. There are unconfirmed reports of more casualties.
Yesterday, Observatory activists documented renewed bombardment on the “de-escalation zone” in Idlib and Hama countryside in the early hours of Sunday morning, as regime forces shelled positions in Al-Faterah, Kansafrah, Sfuhen, Bayanin in the southern countryside of Idlib, Qulaydin and Al-Ankawi in Sahl Al-Ghab in the north-western countryside of Hama. Meanwhile, opposition factions fired several rockets on regime positions in Jabal Al-Zawiyah and Sahl Al-Ghab. However, no casualties were reported.
