Homs - SMART

Clashes between the loyalist forces and the Free Syrian Army have killed and injured 18 loyalist fighters during the latter’s attempts at advancing toward the village of al-Amiriyah (20 kilometers north of Homs), Central Syria.

The Head of the Ahrar al-Sham Islamic Movement media office, who introduces himself as Fares Abu Oubada, said that 11 loyalist fighters were killed and injured during the clashes against the factions of the Northern Countryside of Homs operation room. The clashes began after the loyalist forces attacked the village with tank shells and armoured vehicles in addition to air, artillery and missile cover.

Abu Oubada added that the FSA fighters counter-attacked government bases after they repelled the first attack. The FSA fighters killed and injured seven other loyalists in addition to destroying a tank and damaging a BMP-vehicle, without further mentioning the losses for FSA factions.

Abu Oubada pointed out that the goal behind the government attack is to put more pressure on the area in order to gain control over it. The attack coincided with Russian threats of ending the de-escalation agreement that includes the Northern Suburbs of Homs. He also said that the village has an important strategic location in that it overlooks the villages of Ghasbiah and al-Mushrifah which are currently under government control, and in addition to a road connecting Homs and Salamiah.

A government sniper killed an FSA fighter near the village of Ghanto (10 kilometers north of Homs). The sniper was stationed at a base in the government-controlled village of Jabbourin.

On Feb. 24, the Ahrar al-Sham Islamic Movement proclaimed repelling a loyalist forces attempt to advance toward the village of al-Amiriyah. Again the government attack violates the de-escalation agreement decided upon with Russia.

The clashes between the two parties consists mainly of rapid strikes and ambushes, despite a ceasefire agreement being agreed upon in October 2017.
