Sources at opposition factions denied the news of “capturing officers in Assad army or Russian soldiers in the counter-attack on Kafr Nabudah town in Hama countryside, “in a statement to Verify-Sy.



“Opposition factions did not capture any soldier of Assad forces or Russian soldiers in the opposition counter-attack on Kafr Nabudah area in Idlib countryside.” said Jaysh al-Izza spokesperson Captain Mustafa Mu’arrati in a statement to Verify-Sy. In addition, media and military sources at opposition Operations Room in Hama countryside denied capturing any member in the battles last Sunday.


Social media users and pages reported, “Revolutionists captured many members of Russian and Assad soldiers in the counter-attack on Kafr Nabudah town.” The news has gone viral after the counter-attack on Kafr Nabudah town last Sunday.

Opposition factions had captured a colonel and 3 members of Assad forces, after retaking the town last Wednesday.

Four days later, Assad forces seized control of Kafr Nabuda town after clashes with opposition forces. The clashes are still ongoing around the area.
