    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) – At least five civilians were wounded due to terrorist shelling in the northwest of the Syrian province of Hama, Al Ekhbariya broadcaster reported Wednesday.

    In turn, the Syrian army attacked the positions of terrorists in the province, from which they fired at civilians of the Jurayn village, according to Al Ekhbariya broadcaster.

    This comes amid the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) terrorist clearing operations in the village of Baghouz, which SDF considers to be the last settlement in Syria controlled by the Daesh* terror group.
