Syrian Army, Popular Forces Raid Nusra Rebels across Lattakia Province
The Syrian Army and popular forces, in joint operations, stormed the positions of al-Nusra Front across the costal province of Lattakia, and killed or wounded several fighters, the military sources announced.
The sources said that the country’s soldiers and popular forces pushed back Nusra militants from the nearby areas of al-Furolouq forests and Tal al-Araz in the Northern countryside of Lattakia and killed scores of them.
On Wednesday, the Syrian army killed a notorious Takfiri terrorist commander in heavy clashes in the province of Lattakia.
Abu Abdul Rahman al-Madani, the Al-Nusra Front commander in Lattakia, was killed in Jabal al-Torkman region in the Lattakia province, Western Syria.
In March 2013, the Northern Lattakia was attacked by the Takfiri terrorists most of whom were Chechens and Turkmens backed by Turkey.
The most important goal of the Takfiri terrorists from attacking Northern Lattakia has been finding a sea route to the outside world.
Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis gaining access to the international waters has been a dream of the terrorist groups, including the Al-Nusra Front and the ISIL.
