Suicide bombers disguised as farmers struck an army position in western Syria.

Suicide bombers disguised as farmers struck an army position in western Syria in an attack that killed three people and all the militants, state-run media said.

The attack north of Hama city adds to pressures on Russian-Turkish agreements that have contained the war in northwestern Syria, the last major foothold of the insurgency against President Bashar al-Assad.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 10 people were killed and the attack was carried out by a jihadist group in a “demilitarized” zone set up under the Turkish-Russian agreement. State media said the militants were dressed as local farmers when they hit the position near Taybat al-Imam around 3 a.m. (midnight GMT).
