DAMASCUS: The Syrian army killed “many terrorists” but no civilians in Treimsa village in the central province of Hama, a military spokesman said on Friday.

“Army units carried out a special operation” on Thursday, the spokesperson said, “targeting armed terrorist groups and their leadership hide-outs.”

The operation “eradicated the terrorist groups' lairs and killed many terrorists,” the spokesman said, adding that “the terrorists were dealt with, while there were no civilian victims.”

Dozens of arrests were made and a large quantity of arms and documents seized, he said.
