Footage shot on Friday in Al-Hamah, in the countryside near Damascus, captures heavy fighting between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and opposition militants. Heavy gunfire and the sounds of explosions can be heard on the footage, as thick smoke billow from surrounding buildings. Tanks can also be seen on the streets of Al-Hamah, as they take part in the operation. According to local media the SAA launched an offensive on positions of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and affiliated groups in the area, after the opposition fighters reportedly violated the peace deal by refusing to retreat from Al-Hamah.
