URGENT: Syrian Army, Allies Inch Closer to Kabani’s Southern Outskirts
“The Syrian government forces pushed the terrorists back from Jabal al-Zweiqat for the second time in the last 72 hours and also imposed full control over another mount opposite Jabal al-Zweiqat which paved the war for their easier access to the Southern outskirts of the town,” the sources said.
“The army seized the Southern overlooking heights of Kabani after fierce clashes with the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front and a group of non-Syrian terrorists known as al-Turkistanis,” they added.
Reports said earlier today that the terrorist groups continued to withdraw forces from more positions in the Northeastern part of the costal province of Lattakia near the border with Idlib province after a large-scale offensive of the Syrian Army and allies in the region.
The Syrian government forces stormed the militant strongholds in the Mount 1154 near Kabani and seized full control over the mount in a rapid battle with the terrorists.
The Syrian army and its popular allies launched massive operations Northeast of Lattakia bordering the Southern part of Idlib province to wipe out the last positions of the terrorist groups in the coastal province.
