Syrian army forces have managed to frustrate a series of attacks by militants from the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, in the country’s western-central province of Hama as they are engaged in joint counter-terrorism operations with allied fighters from popular defense groups against the extremists.
The latest chemical attack in Syria's west-central province of Hama is a “false flag” operation, says an analyst, adding that foreign-backed militants are seeking a pretext for the involvement of the United States, Britain and France in the war-torn Arab country.
Syrian government forces, supported by allied fighters from popular defense groups, have carried out fresh operations against terrorists from the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri group, formerly known as the al-Nusra Front, in the country’s western-central province of Hama, inflicting substantial losses on them.
The United Nations (UN) says about 40,000 people, mainly women and children, have been forced out of their homes due to renewed violence perpetrated by militants near the government-held Syrian city of Hama.
Syrian government forces and their allies recaptured several towns and villages from terrorists in the west of the country on Saturday, monitors and pro-Damascus media reported, reversing rare gains made by the terrorists in recent weeks.
The Syrian prime minister has sharply condemned the “heinous” massacre of civilians by Takfiri terrorists in a town in the west-central province of Hama, urging global support for Damascus’ fight against terror.
