Three senior commanders of the so-called Free Syrian Army were killed in military operations in Syria’s province of Lattakia.

On Wednesday, Rasheed Bikdash, one of “Mujahidin Army” leaders, was killed in clashes with the Syrian army in North of Lattakia.

Sources said Bikdash is the highest-ranking defector from the Syrian army that has been killed in Syria.

Abbas Hijazi, the commander of Maher Hijazi Battalion, and Abu Salim Julaq were also killed in Lattakia.

The Syrian Army alongside the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) on Wednesday continued pushing back the militant groups in Lattakia province and restored full security to at least five more key regions in the Northern part of the coastal province.

The pro-government forces hit hard the militant groups in Por Abdullah region, Ketf al-Hareek, the fifth and sixth hills and Ketf al-Safeh and forced them to retreat the fighting areas after leaving behind scores of dead members.

On Tuesday, the Syrian army, backed by the National Defense Forces, captured a hill and more heights in Lattakia as the army’s march on terrorists’ positions in the coastal province is gathering pace.

The Syrian forces regained control of al-Sheikh Mohammed hill and the 1281 R5 height in the Northeastern countryside of Lattakia.
