Remnants of terrorists attack rural settlements in Syria

30.09.2020, Damascus.

At least 9 people were killed as a result of a terrorist attack on villages in Hama province, a Rossa Primavera News Agency’s source in Syria said September 30.

“Nine corpses of citizens were brought to the national hospital of Salamiya city from the Al-Fasida village in the east of Salamiyah in eastern Hama province, they were killed as a result of attack of ISIL remnants (organization banned in Russia) on villages,” the source said.

Most of Hama province is under the Syrian Arab Army’s control. Terrorist are active in a number of areas in this province.

The day before, the Syrian Arab Army returned fire and destroyed terrorist positions in northern Hama province, near the villages of Mharde and Salhab.


Although hostilities on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic (SAR) has been localized by 2020, and major battles continue in the north of the country in Idlib, peace has not yet come to the Syrian land definitively.

All participants in the civil war in Syria, except government forces and supporters of the Assad’s army, Russia and Iran, are accustomed to using sabotage with mining infrastructure or cars as a means of waging war.

ISIL terrorists (organization banned in Russia) have used and continue to use this, most often their attacks are directed at the Kurds in areas of Syria east of the Euphrates River. However, sleeper cells of Islamists are also trying to organize terrorist attacks in areas that the Syrian army have long liberated.

Militants from the internationally recognized Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham militant group (organization banned in Russia) and their associates from “moderate opposition” groups regularly mined cars with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) during conflicts with each other during the redistribution of controlled zones in the Idlid province being under the terrorists’ control. Similar sabotages were carried out against Assad’s army by US-trained militants from groups under US military control.

Finally, Kurds from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) also used car-bombs during guerrilla operations. The Kurds began guerrilla war against the Turkish-baced “moderate opposition” and the Turkish soldiers deployed in Syria after losing part of their territory in the Afrin area and east of the Euphrates River. The SDF lost these territories during the Turkish Operations Olive Branch and Peace Spring in 2018 and 2019.

As a result, terrorist attacks with car bombs or improvised explosive devices occur almost daily in Syria. Some of them cause only the deaths of warring parties’s fighters, but often Syrian civlians also suffer from explosions.
