BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian army repelled attacks against a number of military positions in the south of the country, state television reported in a newsflash on Thursday.

The assaults took place in the countryside of Deraa province and the army killed dozens of the attackers, it said, citing a military source.

A group monitoring the war said earlier on Thursday that Syrian rebels attacked government-held areas of the provincial capital, Deraa city, overnight.
