Dozens killed and wounded in clash between Syrian regime and rebels
Syrian rebels have clashed with government forces in Hama province in some of the heaviest fighting in Syria’s northwest this year.
That’s according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which says that Syria’s army and its allies attacked the rebels near the village of Halfaya.
They seized several positions, killing at least 22 opposition fighters and wounding dozens more in the process.
Intermittent fighting has taken place since September, when a deal for a demilitarised zone in the area was agreed between Syria’s ally, Russia, and Turkey, which backs some rebel groups.
