Homs - SMART

The factions of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamist battalions captured five loyalist forces' fighters and killed others in clashes between the two parties in the Northern Homs and Southern Hama countryside, Northern Syria, as the loyalist forces intensively bombed the area.

A military source from the FSA factions reported that the FSA captured five loyalist fighters, as the loyalist forces attempted to advance into the village of Salim, about 28 kilometers northeast of Homs.

Jaysh al-Tawhid announced that it blocked more than three loyalist forces' attempts to advance into the village from its eastern parameter, as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham declared that its fighters destroyed a loyalist military vehicle equipped with a Shilka machine gun, and two other pickup cars near the village.

The Commander of the Homs countryside Operation Room, Lieutenant Colonel Talal Mansour, reported that the loyalist forces and Iranian militias attempt to seize control of areas near Homs-al-Salamiyah highway either by negotiations or by infantry attacks, supported by armored vehicles and warplanes.

Mansour added that the loyalist forces attempted to advance near al-Salim village on Monday, supported by intensified airstrikes and artillery bombings on residential areas. Mansour said that the FSA factions blocked this attempt and caused the loyalist forces losses in fighters and munition, adding that most of the FSA factions of Northern Homs countryside participated in this blockage.

Activists from the area said that the loyalist forces, supported by Russian warplanes, raided the area more than 50 times from midnight Sunday until Monday morning. The raids were concentrated on the villages of Salim, al-Hamrat, Qunaiterat, al-Ameriyah, Dallak, Hkarfan and Aidoun, which spread in the Northeastern Homs, and the Southeastern Hama countryside.

On Sunday, the loyalist forces attacked residential areas in the Northern Homs countryside, killing and injuring several civilians.

On Saturday, Jaysh Homs of the FSA announced blocking a loyalist advance attempt in the Qubat al- Kurdi area, Eastern Hama, as three fighters of the al Rastan Operation Room were killed, and six others were injured. Another opponent of Jaysh Homs was injured in these clashes.
