Syria Army Launches Counterattack, Kills Dozens of Terrorists in HamaThe well-equipped terrorists on Sunday attacked military posts in al-Masasneh in northern Hama, targeting the areas of al-Madajen, Zor al-Hisa and Khirbet Ma’rin, SANA reported.

The army troops pushed them back, killing and injuring scores of them. 

Later, the Syrian troops shelled the terrorists’ bases in al-Hamra, Bab al-Taqa, al-Madiq castle, and al-Twaina in Hama’s northern countryside, inflicting losses upon them.

Under a deal reached following a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in September, all militants should have withdrawn from the demilitarization zone by October 15.

However, al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri terrorists said they refuse to either leave the buffer zone or hand over their weapons.

Moscow believed that the 15-20 kilometer buffer zone would help stop attacks from Idlib-based militants on Syrian army positions and Russia's military bases in the flashpoint region.

Idlib and some surrounding areas are the last major bastions of Takfiri terrorists and anti-government militants in Syria, where the Syrian government has in recent months retaken much of the territory it had lost since the conflict erupted in the country in 2011.
