Hama - SMART

On Wednesday, a landmine exploded on one of the bridges connecting the areas controlled by the Syrian National Liberation Front (NLF), which is an opposition group formed by the two Sunni Islamist groups Ahrar al-Sham and the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, and the areas controlled by the Syrian government forces in Western Hama.

Activists reported that a landmine exploded on the al-Tweinah Bridge that connects the NLF-controlled villages of al-Tweinah and Qalat al-Madiq with the Syrian government forces-controlled village of al-Harrah in the al-Ghab Plain area, Western Hama. The explosion destroyed the bridge, cutting off the connection between the areas.

The activists said that the NLF planted and exploded the landmine to prevent the Syrian government forces from advancing via the bridge in case of a military operation, as the Syrian government is mobilizing its forces in the area. This bridge was the third to be destroyed by landmines in the last week.

The activists noted that the destruction of the al-Tweinah Bridge will affect the movement of civilians and prevent several farmers from reaching their lands west of the bridge.

Also, a landmine exploded on the Beit al-Ras Bridge, which connects the village of Beit al-Ras with the Syrian government forces-controlled village of al-Jid, destroying parts of the bridge. A similar explosion targeted the bridge days earlier.

Earlier, several local councils from the al-Ghab Plain area condemned the NLF explosions that targeted the Beit al-Ras and al-Sharia bridges. The NLF reported that it is not responsible for the explosions, while activists confirmed the NLF's responsibility.
