Nusra Terrorists Fail to Prevail over Syrian Army Positions in Northern Homs

fanTEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian Army troops warded off a large-scale offensive of Al-Nusra Front (recently renamed to Fatah al-Sham Front) in Northern Homs, killing 15 terrorists and wounding several more.

The al-Nusra Front took to the the towns of Ein al-Hossein, Jaboula and al-Amiriyeh in Central Homs to break through the government forces’ positions in the town of Ein al-Dananir but failed and lost at least 15 fighters in clashes with the army soldiers.

A military source said that the Nusra terrorists had planned to open their way to the Northern front of the key town of al-Moshrefeh after capturing Ein al-Dananir.

On Thursday, the army’s artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at several positions of Al-Nusra Front in Northern Homs, destroying their positions and killing or wounding a number of terrorists.
