"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Syrian Army defeats ISIL infiltration attempt in east Hama- Al-Masdar News

On Friday morning in the Hama Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a powerful assault on the village of Mafkar Al-Sharqiyah inside the Al-Salamiyah District, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the eastern flank. 

The ISIS assault began at approximately 8:30 A.M. (Damascus Time) when they sent a VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) towards the Syrian Arab Army’s checkpoint outside of Mafkar Al-Sharqiyah. 

Luckily, the checkpoint guards outside of Mafkar Al-Sharqiyah destroyed the VBIED before it could reach its intended destination.
