Syrian Army Frees 66 Abducted In Homs As 100 Rebels Surrender


The Syrian army has killed at least eight armed men in fresh clashes in northwestern city of Idlib, while freeing 66 people kidnapped by armed terrorist gangs in Homs.


Press TV – Eight terrorists were killed as fresh clashes broken out between the Syrian army and armed groups in the northwestern city of Idlib on Monday. There are no reports on possible casualties from the Syrian army.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army has managed to free 66 people kidnapped by armed groups in the western city of Homs.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011 and many people, including security forces, have lost their lives in the violence.

The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing the protesters. But Damascus blames ”outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, stating that it is being orchestrated from abroad.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on February 20 that “some foreign countries” are fueling the turmoil in Syria by supporting and funding “armed terrorist groups fighting against the government.
