Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his family have visited injured army personnel in their home villages in the west-central province of Hama.

The Assads visited Mohammad Ahmad Khalil in the village of Tal Aafar and Fatir Hassan Mansour in the village of Rabou. Both of the soldiers were wounded in the line of duty while battling Takfiri terrorists and have a disability rating of over 90 percent, the SANA news agency reported on Sunday.

The president and his family also visited Ahmad Mohammad al-Ali and Mahmoud Dunya in the Deir Shmail village.

All of the wounded troops are receiving support by the Jarih al-Watan program which aids troops with treatment and prosthetics, surgery and helps their general rehabilitation.

The program was launched by the Syrian president in 2014 with the goal of supporting wounded troops and civilians by providing their needs, mainly those whose wounds stop them from functioning in their normal lives.
