Insurgents in Syria attack government positions

Insurgent groups attacked several Syrian government positions in Hama province on Thursday in what a rebel commander said was the biggest rebel assault in the area since a cessation of hostilities agreement came into effect two weeks ago.

There were conflicting accounts about the outcome of the attack and who carried it out. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack failed with at least 20 of the attackers killed, describing them as Islamists including foreign fighters.
