Syria Army kills several insurgents in Aleppo, Idlib

Aug 30, 2012 - Syrian Army forces have killed a number of insurgents in the northwestern cities Aleppo and Idlib as clashes continue between government soldiers and foreign-backed insurgents.

The Syrian Army was closing in on the insurgents on Thursday, one day after Syrian soldiers killed a group of armed men who had kidnapped a number of civilians. 

Syrian government forces were also clearing the area of insurgents in Idlib, where they have managed to retake control of six areas held by the so-called Free Syrian Army.

In the capital, Syrian troops killed and arrested a number of armed men in the Damascus countryside and seized large amounts of arms and ammunitions -- among them Israeli-made weapons. 

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus blames the chaos on outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists funded and instructed by elements outside the country.

There are reports indicating that a large number of the armed militants are foreign nationals.

Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorist gangs seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million).
