Hama: National Front kills 4 troops in TOW missile attack
(Zaman Al Wasl)- The National Front on Tuesday has killed four regime troops in TOW missile attack in northwestern Hama province, military source told Zaman al-Wasl.

The Turkish-backed group has targeted regime forces in the Ghap Plain, one of the regime's main manpower supply.

Use of U.S.-made anti-tank and guided missiles as the weapons are having an impact on the battlefield. 

Rebels also have thwarted an attack by Iran-backed fighters east of Idlib city.

Spearheading the offensive on Idlib and northern parts of the central province of Hama is the regime’s elite Tiger Force led by Brig. Gen. Suheil al-Hassan, a Russian-backed Syrian officer who took credit for some of the biggest regime victories in the eight-year conflict, according to AP.

But he has not succeeded in breaking Idlib’s defenses and remains deadlocked. According to opposition activists, elite forces from the Republican Guards and the Fourth Division led by Assad’s younger brother, Maher, have recently started taking part in the offensive.

Eight years of war in Syria have killed 560,000 people and driven half the pre-war population of 22 million from their homes, including more than 6 million as refugees to neighbouring countries. Zaman Al Wasl, AP
