Rebels reportedly killed 32 government soldiers in Sahl Al-Ghab (Hama province) on Sunday, May 10, during an offensive. Reports indicate 13 rebels were also killed in the fighting. Rebel forces reportedly took control of Tanjara village and regime forces then launched a counteroffensive to try and regain control of lost territory.
Further clashes are likely in the near term.
To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.
Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
