AMMAN - Syrian troops backed by tanks killed at least 10 people when they stormed the city of Hama on Wednesday.

In the first armored incursion into Hama since a tank offensive in August ended large protests in the city center, troops entered districts north and east of the Orontes River, firing machine guns and ransacking and burning closed shops, they said.

The incursion came just after thirteen people were killed the Hama province Wednesday when troops fired on a car and provoked a reprisal ambush. The British-based Syrian Organization for Human Rights said that army deserters ambushed a convoy of four military jeeps, killing eight soldiers, in response to the army attack on a car which killed five people.
