Rebels thwart new offensive in Hama, kill 30 troops: commander
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Syrian rebels on Monday have thwarted an attack by regime forces and allied militias in northwestern Hama province, killing 30 troops, commander told Zaman al-Wasl.
 
Abu Yasser al-Hamwi, senior rebel commander, said the Syrian opposition had foiled new offensive on the battlefronts of Qassabiya, Tel Melh and Kafr Houd. Dozens of regime militants were killed and wounded, he added.
 
Idlib and parts of Hama have come under increasing fire by the regime and its ally Russia since late April, despite a months-old international truce deal.
 
The Syrian Network for Human Rights,(SNHR), which monitors casualties and briefs various UN agencies, said at least 544 civilians had been killed and 2,117 people had been injured in the hundreds of attacks carried out by Russian jets and the regime army include 130 children. .

The United Nations says 25 health facilities in the region have been hit.
 
Moscow says its forces and the Syrian army are fending off terror attacks by al Qaeda militants whom they say hit populated, government-held areas, and it accuses rebels of wrecking a ceasefire deal agreed last year between Turkey and Russia.

Syria's war has killed more than 560,000 people and displaced millions since it started in 2011 with a brutal crackdown on anti-regime protests.
