Lattakia: Countdown Starts for Syrian Army’s Kabani Liberation Operation
The Syrian army and its allies have significantly advanced against the terrorist groups in Northeastern Lattakia and are preparing to launch a large-scale offensive on the Takfiri terrorists’ positions to end militancy at Lattakia-Idlib border, military sources said.
“The Syrian Army troops and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters have fortified their position in Syriatell region and meantime pushed back the terrorist groups from the strategic heights of 1125 and 1154, which claimed the lives of scores of militants,” the sources said, adding, “The government forces are coordinating the last steps of a large scale operation to hit the militant position in the town of Kabani from its Southern flank.”
“The terrorists groups of al-Nusra Front and al-Turkistani have suffered a heavy death toll in the offensives in the mountainous battlefields of the province,” the sources added.
“The Syrian army and its allies have deployed their forces very close to Kabani and the town has militarily fallen but the terrorist groups continue their meaningless resistance against the government forces which will end in nothing but inflicting more casualties on militants,” the sources underlined.
“Recapture of Kabani will result in liberation of large regions in al-Ghaab plain and the strategic city of Jisr al-Shughour in Idlib province ,” they further added.
In relevant developments on Monday, the Syrian army and National Defense Forces (NDF) continued their advances in the Northern part of Lattakia province and seized back a strategic hilltop there.
The army units and NDF took full control of Ruweisat al-Aliyeh near Kabani region in Northern Lattakia province.
The Syrian government troops’ capture of Ruweisat al-Aliyeh hilltop was after they fortified their positions in Height 1112 and al-Zuweiqat Mountain.
