The Free Syrian Army groups are fighting fierce battles against the Assad regime forces and their allied sectarian militias in northeastern rural Hama.
On Wednesday, the Al-Izza Army FSA group foiled attempts by the Assad regime forces and their allied foreign militias to advance on the Syriatel hill, the village of Al-Zafriya, and the Zahraa farmland northeast of Hama, killing 20 pro-regime militants and destroying a T-55 tank.
FSA sources said that “violent” clashes are raging on the fronts of Marijab al-Jamlan and Abu Laffa, adding that Assad regime are desperate to advance in the area.
Military sources told Inab Baladi newspaper that reinforcements of Iranian-backed militias arrived east of Idlib and in northern rural Hama, alongside reinforcements that “routinely” arrive in the areas of Hadir and Talalin south of Aleppo.
FSA groups in southern Syria on Tuesday called for the formation of a “joint military command” to be the only military representative of the area.
In mid-October, about 25 FSA groups and civic bodies met with representatives of the town of Busra in Dara’a province to discuss the establishment of a military committee to work on creating a military command for the southern region. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
