Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist militias have made a wall of human shield at the frontier of some areas on the battlefield in Syria’s Adra to deter army improvements.
Heavy clashes have been going on in the southern city of Adra between mercenary militants linked to al-Qaeda and Syrian Arab Army soldiers, Al Alam correspondent Mazin Salmo said.
The town, with a population of around 20,000, was captured by militants from the Al-Nusra Front and the Jaysh al-Islam, following fierce fighting with Syrian armed forces.
An army commander told Salmo that militants had taken thousands of people as hostage and located them at the border areas of the town to hinder army attacks.
He said the army is currently working on plans to enter that area and push out the armed terrorists.
According to Arabic language al-Haghigha website some 1,000 to 1,500 militants entered the town on Wednesday and started massacring people, some of them family by family, at their arrival.
Those who were lucky to flee the town have been describing unprecedented levels of atrocities committed by the extremist militants who attacked their town to kill everybody.
It is not clear how many people have exactly been killed since Wednesday in Adra, but reports by ‘Russia Today’ said at least 80 people were executed.
