An army unit, in cooperation with popular defense groups, thwarted an infiltration attempt by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorists into al-Mabou’ja village in the eastern countryside of Hama province.




A military source told SANA Tuesday that the army unit clashed with groups of ISIS terrorists who attempted to attack at dawn the innocent civilians of al-Mabou’ja village, in the eastern countryside of Salamiyeh city.


The source added that the army killed a number of ISIS terrorists and destroyed their vehicles, while the rest fled away into al-Badia, leaving their weapons and ammunition behind.


Last March, ISIS terrorists perpetrated a massacre against the innocent civilians of the village, claiming the lives of more than 50 ones, mostly women and children in addition to kidnapping a number of others.
