Jund Al-Sham Ringleader: Resistance against Syrian Army No More Possible
Leader of Jund al-Sham terrorist group Abu Walid al-Shishani announced that his forces can no more block the Syrian army advances.
Appearing in a video message on Wednesday, Shishani referred to the dire situation of his forces in Syria, and underlined that they are no more able to stand against the Syrian army in Lattakia province any more.
He also said that the preparedness and number of his forces have decreased.
He made the remarks after the Syrian army and the popular forces captured and imposed full control over more than 300 square kilometers of lands in the Northern parts of Lattakia province.
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 The terrorists have now withdrawn to other cities in the Western parts of Lattakia.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 on Tuesday 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.
