Reporters moving through the village with the army escort saw several cars burning, with thick, black smoke billowing into the air.

Most of the villagers have fled previous fighting, although about 50 people — mostly women and children — were seen leaving the village on Friday.

It was not clear if all the damage to the Crac and Hosn village was from Thursday’s battle that started at dawn, according to the commander.
