DAMASCUS, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Incessant battles between armed rebels and government troops continued in a number of Syrian cities on Tuesday while embattled President Bashar al-Assad stressed the government's and the people's resolution to eradicate "terrorists" in the country.

The state news agency SANA said clashes took place Tuesday in Homs, Hama, Deir al-Zour, Hasaka and Aleppo provinces.

It said groups of "terrorists," who are fleeing from the armed forces in the city of Homs, committed on Tuesday a massacre against citizens at Jandar Resort in the countryside of Homs where many of the innocent people got killed.

Meanwhile, border guards in cooperation with authorities in Homs foiled an infiltration attempt by armed groups from the Lebanese territories at al-Armouta site in Talkalakh of Homs countryside and inflicted heavy losses upon the infiltrators, according to the SANA.

The agency also reported that an armed group fired missiles from inside the Lebanese territories on the site of Jisr Qmar crossing point to cover the infiltration attempt.

The agency said that the authorities killed and wounded many terrorists while the others fled into the Lebanese territories. The authorities also chased down the armed men in a number of neighborhoods of Homs and inflicted heavy losses upon them. The armed men had been stationing in the neighborhoods of al-Warsheh, Bab Hood, Bab Dreib and al-Khalidieh in Homs, said SANA.

In eastern Deir al-Zour, authorities clashed with an armed group which tried to attack law-enforcement forces in al-Mayadeen city, killing all its members.
