The Syrian troops have repeatedly engaged with militants who were sneaking in and out of Syria through neighbouring Lebanon.
In another incident, 11 militants were killed when the Syrian troops destroyed a factory for manufacturing explosive devices and improvised rockets in Idlib province's Sarkeh town, SANA news agency reported.
