ISIS attacks on Syrian army in Hama province (Map)
ISWNews Analysis Group: ISIS hidden cells attacked Syrian army positions in al-Shakusiyah and al-Rahjan on the northeastern part of Hama province.
There is currently intense fighting between Syrian army forces and ISIS elements and Russian fighter jets have flown 130 sorties in the last 48 hours over the area.
According pro-militants media, 19 members of the Syrian army have been killed in the past 48 hours. 12 ISIS elements were also killed. Given the scale of the clashes and the widespread bombardment of terrorist gatherings and positions, and the deteriorating condition of several of the wounded, this number is likely to increase.
