About 200 military vehicles stormed the Syrian town of Jisr al-Shugur on Sunday as helicopters armed with machine guns hovered, local activists said. Heavy shelling also fell in the northwestern town, said the Local Coordination Committees of Syria.
Syrian state television reported Sunday that military units have entered Jisr al-Shugur to "cleanse the national hospital from the elements of the armed gangs after disabling the explosives and the various TNT devices that these gangs planted on the bridges and roads." The state-run network reported that authorities in the town had found a mass grave containing members of security forces who were killed by "armed gangs."
