Syrian anti-terror forces find bomb factory


DAMASCUS, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Syrian anti-terrorism forces have discovered an explosives factory in the northern city of Aleppo, the state-owned SANA news agency said on Wednesday.
SANA gave no further details but six people including two militants were wounded on Sunday when Syrian security forces clashed in Aleppo with Islamic militants they described as members of an "armed terrorist group".
Both militants were captured. A source familiar to the case said the factory belonged to that group, which has not been named. SANA said two militants were killed and another wounded in a similar clash late last month.
Syrian security forces have clashed with Islamic militants several times this year, usually in raids to arrest them.
In the early 1980s, Syria crushed an Islamist uprising, leading to the killing and imprisonment of thousands and driving the Muslim Brotherhood into exile.
