Syrian army troops have killed more than 70 Takfiri terrorists and injured 30 others during its anti-terror military offensive in the western province of Hama.

The fatalities were caused on Wednesday in the Kawkab village of the province’s Hama District.

Arabic-language news website Syria Now identified one of the wounded as Hannan Abu Laith, the military commander of the Jabhat Fath al-Sham (The Conquest of Syria Front) terror outfit, formerly known as al-Nusra Front.

Syrian forces also destroyed some tanks and military vehicles used by Takfiri militants in the same province.

The official Syrian Arab News Agency, meanwhile, reported that the Syrian air force had targeted Takfiri militants across the northwestern Aleppo province, including the Khan Tuman village, killing a large number of them.

It added that the army killed and injured a number of operatives tied to Jabhat Fath al-Sham in southwestern Dara’a Province.

A number of artillery positions belonging to Takfiri terrorists were also destroyed in Latakia Province, located in Syria’s northwest, the country’s Defense Ministry announced.

Separately, unknown gunmen injured a number of civilians in mortar attacks close to Umayyad Mosque and the Mezzeh neighborhood in the capital, Damascus.

Since 2011, the country has found itself in the clutches of foreign-backed militancy, which has so far killed hundreds of thousands and displaced millions.
