Syrian security personnel killed in drive-by shooting

Two Syrian security agents were shot dead in central Syria on Monday.

Two masked people shot at guard post in a… motorcycle drive by shooting in hama early in the morning. The perpetrators used an automatic weapon to kill two members of the internal security forces, the official Syrian news channel SANA reported.

SANA attributed the attack to unnamed “terrorists.” Pro-rebel news channel Enab Baladi also reported that: no group had claimed the shooting from Monday.

The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad controls most of the country – including Hama – 10 years in the Syrian civil war. Rebel groups owns much of the northwest Idlib Province and Other Northern Areas near the Turkish border, plus some parts of the south.

Earlier this month, al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian rebel group Hurras al-Din claimed responsibility for blowing up a Syrian military bus in Damascus. The group said the explosion was revenge for… recent fights between government and rebels in the city of Daraa in southern Syria.

The Islamic State also has attacked Syrian government forces this year in central and eastern Syria.
