Jihadist rebels launch deadly attack on large Christian city in northern Hama

On Friday, the jihadist rebels in northern Hama launched a deadly attack on a densely populated town controlled by Syrian government.

According to a military source in northern Hama, the jihadist rebels fired several missiles towards the large Christian town of Mhardeh, which is located near the Idlib axis.

As a result of this attack, at least nine civilians were killed and another 20 more were seriously wounded.

Due to its proximity to the jihadist held towns in northern Hama, Mhardeh has been a prime target for groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The jihadist rebels launch this attack this evening in response to the large scale buildup of Syrian army troops in northwest Syria.
