The sources reported that based on an agreement with the Syrian army hundreds of militants handed over their arms and ammunition and received government amnesty in the town of Jarjiseh.
In the meantime, the army forces carried out mop-up operation in al-Houleh region in Northern Homs and found a large volume of arms and ammunition, anti-tank missiles and bombs in terrorists’ positions, they added.
The sources went on to say that the army’s engineering units further discovered two tunnels of the terrorists in al-Sa’an and Hawsh al-Hajwa East of Talbiseh region in Northern Homs.
Terrorists were using the tunnels for moving between their positions and hideouts and also penetrating into the army’s positons and safe zones near their regions.
Earlier reports said that the army aircraft bombed heavily the terrorists’ positions in the villages and townships of al-Zakah, Hasraya and al-Sayad in Northern Ham, killing a number of gunmen and destroying their military equipment.
In the meantime, the artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at terrorists’ positions in Morek, Ma’arkaba, al-Latamina, Kafr Zita, al-Zakah, al-Lahaya and Tal Howeiz regions in Northern Hama and in the village of al-Baneh in Western Hama.
Other missile units targeted terrorists’ centers in Badama in Jisr al-Shughour region in Western Idlib.
Tens of terrorists were killed and tens of others were wounded and their military hardware were badly damaged in the attacks.
The army’s attack came after the terrorists launched heavy offensives against pro-government forces’ positions in Hama and Idlib to disturb the army’s concentration on its operation in the Southern part of the country.
