Terrorists use chemical weapons to slow down Syrian Army advance in Hama Province
The Al-Nusra Front terrorists launched chemical attack against advancing Syrian Army troops in northeastern Hama to prevent their march towards Idlib and recapture lost lands.
According to FNA, field sources confirmed on Tuesday, the Al-Nusra launched an assault in northeastern Hama, targeting the army positions near the key town of Atshan and seizing the towns of Al-Baleel and Um Turaykiyeh.
A military source reported that the Army forces were unable to maintain their ground in Al-Baleel and Um Turaykiyeh because their soldiers were gassed by the Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army's Jeish al-Izzah terrorists.
Another military source said that the Syrian Army dispatched a large number of fresh soldiers to recapture the lost towns a few hours after their fall to the terrorists.
