In pictures (Warning 18+) | Syrian forces kill many jihadist terrorist attacking Fuah and Kafraya in Idlib
Syrian forces defending the besieged villages of Fuah and Kafraya in northern Idlib Governorate have killed at least 15 Nusra Front terrorists.
The jihadist militants attacked Fuah and Kafraya on Saturday hoping to breach the lines of local government forces tasked with protecting the villages.
The pro-government fighters that repelled the terrorist attack are highly-experienced, having defeated many such infiltrations in the past.
The residents of Fuah and Kafrayaare are mostly Shia, a minority Islamic sect in Syria. Nusra Front and other jihadists consider them unworthy of existing in areas under their control meaning that the villages’ defenders are locked in a daily battle for survival.
