Syrian army retakes strategic mountain from Takfiris
Syrian government forces have liberated a strategic mountainous region in the country’s coastal western province of Latakia from foreign-sponsored militants.
On Wednesday, Syrian army troops backed by fighters from allied popular forces established control over the al-Nuba Mountains, which are located to the north of the port city of Latakia, following intense clashes with terrorists, Syria’s official SANA news agency reported.
The report added that a number of militant bases were destroyed during the mop-up operations.
On Tuesday, Syrian military helicopters took off from the Kwairis air base in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo after Syrian army forces broke a two-year militant siege on the site last month.
