TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Syrian forces conducted bombardments against positions of terrorist groups in Hama after they breached the demilitarized zone agreement again.

– World news –

Syrian troops in the surroundings of Tal Bazam carried out precise bombardments against fortifications and positions of terrorist groups affiliated to Al-Nusra Front in the surroundings of Mourek town in Hama, SANA reported on Sunday.

The report added that scores of the terrorists were killed during the raids.

On Saturday, army units also targeted the gatherings of the terrorist groups who attempted to infiltrate from different directions into military posts in Hama.

Under a deal reached following a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in September, all militants must have withdrawn from the demilitarization zone by October 15.

However, the al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri terrorists said they refuse to either leave the buffer zone or hand over their weapons.

Moscow believed that the 15-20 kilometer buffer zone would help stop attacks from Idlib-based militants on Syrian army positions and Russia's military bases in the flashpoint region.

Idlib and some surrounding areas are the last major bastions of Takfiri terrorists and anti-government militants in Syria, where the Syrian government has in recent months retaken much of the territory it had lost since the conflict erupted in the country in 2011.
