BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels of the National Liberation Front launched a heavy attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate this week.

Using artillery shells and Grad missiles, the Turkish-backed rebels repeatedly struck the government-held towns in northern Hama, causing material damage to a number of areas.

Below is a video of the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front firing several rockets towards the government-held areas of northern Hama this week:

In response to the National Liberation Front’s attacks, the Syrian Arab Army unleashed a heavy assault of their own that targeted the enemy trenches near the Turkish observation posts.

These attacks have been going on for much of the month, with both sides accusing one another of violating the September 17th Sochi Agreement.
