The Syrian army and its allies’ joint operations in Lattakia province have significantly pushed back the militants from different villages, heights and towns near border with Turkey.
Earlier reports said today that the Syrian Army and popular forces have pushed back the militant groups from more territories in Lattakia province and took back new Heights near the border with Turkey, battlefield sources announced Sunday.
The Syrian Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard, National Defense Forces (NDF) of Lattakia city and Qurdaha, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) continued their rapid advance along the Turkish border, capturing Height 812 after fierce clashes with al-Nusra Front and the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) 1st Coastal Brigade, the sources said.
“Most of the militants near the Height 812 were killed or wounded and the remaining terrorists withdrew the battle zone leaving behind their military grid,” the sources added.
“The pro-government forces are to continue their operation in the mountainous areas of the coastal province of Lattakia and restore full security to the border regions with Turkey and cut the militant supplying lines,” the military analyzers, who reported the news, underlined.
