Terrorists Fleeing Lattakia Battlefields after Syrian Forces’ Operations, Victories
The Syrian army alongside the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) launched massive operations in mountainous regions of the Northern and Northeastern parts of the province, recapturing vast territories and killing or wounding many militants, the sources said.
“The militants are hopeless and their commanders are not able any more to reorganize the defeated forces,” the source further added.
“The militants have only two ways to choose, being killed or wounded in the battlefields or fleeing,” the sources said.
“The government authorities have announced that will pardon those militant who turn themselves in to the Syrian forces,” they pointed out.
Military analysts believe that the eye-catching victories of the pro-government forces against the militant groups in the mountainous regions of Lattakia in winter time are indebted to the strong will of the Syrian soldiers, the NDF and Hezbollah fighters to route out militancy and terrorism in the country.
They further added that very good back up of the ground forces by the Syrian and Russian Air Force is another factor behind the continued defeats of the militant groups.
The Syrian Army announced on Friday that its forces alongside the country’s popular fighters, backed up by the Russian fighter jets’ bombardments, have gained back over 56 villages, towns and heights from the militant groups across the coastal province of Lattakia in only 68 days.
“The militant groups withdrew forces from over 56 strategic villages, towns and heights after the Syrian government forces launched their joint operation enjoying the back up of the Russian air fleet,” the army said.
“Recapture of 56 strategic points, mainly located in mountainous regions, in only 68 days, seems to be a wonderful sample of coordination and cooperation among the pro-government troops and the Russian Air force,” the army added.
