The Syrian Police has proclaimed that an armed group killed two officers and injured eight others on the international road between Ma'arrat Numan and Khan Sheikhoun in the province of Idlib.

Police personnel were in the process of securing the road, responding to the needs of vehicle-drivers after many were exposed to plunder and intimidation, according to Idlib Police Chief Brigadier Tariq Jawad.

Safwan Shehadah, director of the National Hospital in Ma’ara, stated that an armed group had attacked two ambulances on their way to rescue the injured policemen, injuring one of the ambulance personnel. Shehadah mentioned that injuries ranged from moderate to severe, indicating that most of the injured are now in a stable condition.
