(FNA) – The Syrian army repelled several terrorists’ attacks, and killed 36 armed rebels, including four notorious ringleaders, in Reef (outskirts of) Homs on Wednesday.
The army killed Abu Laith al-Kurdi and Abu Soleiman al-Kuwaiti, two commanders of al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front in al-Shadadi town of Reef Homs today.
Al-Kurdi and al-Kuwaiti were ringleaders of the al-Nusra Front in Ras al-Ain town of al-Hasakah province in Northeastern Syria.
The Syrian army also repelled a terrorist attack on Hendese al-Meydan University in Ain al-Nasr town in Reef Homs.
The army continued its military operations against the armed rebels in al-Jobar town of Reef Homs, and killed 16 terrorists, including their ringleader Ismail al-Raz today.
The Syrian army also killed more than 18 armed rebels, including their commander Mohammad Khaled al-Faraj in al-Qarabis town of Reef Homs today.
Terrorists have tried hard in the last few months to make Syrian cities unsafe, specially for citizens, but the army has purged them from most neighborhoods and districts, killed hundreds of them and arrested many more.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.
Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.
The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
