Syrian Army, Popular Forces Liberate 300 sq/km of Lands in Lattakia
On October 7, the Syrian army started its massive operations with the backup of the Russian air force in Lattakia province to prevent the terrorists from advancing towards the city of Lattakia.
The Syrian army and the Hezbollah fighters have purged terrorists from over 300 square kilometers of land in Lattakia in the past three months.
After gaining control over the city of Idlib (the Wester neighbor of Lattakia), the terrorists started heavy attacks on Lattakia province with the help of Turkey and advanced military hardware and equipment.
But the army and popular forces prevented the terrorists from achieving their goals in Lattakia province.
The Syrian army’s capturing of the strategic city of Salma on Tuesday was a bad defeat for the terrorists. The terrorists have now withdrawn to other cities in the Western parts of Lattakia.
On Tuesday, the Syrian forces won full control over the strategic town of Salma Northeast of Lattakia province in yet another landmark victory over the foreign-backed terrorists.
“The Syrian pro-government forces have taken control of Salma,” the army announced.
The Syrian fighter jets and the country’s artillery units stormed heavily the militant groups’ positions in different sides of Salma for several hours in the morning.
Then the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) pushed back the militant groups from the Southern countryside of Salma and advanced towards the town from two directions in the morning.
