Syrian forces have regained control over key areas in the coastal province of Lattakia and killed a large number of Daesh Takfiri terrorists in the northern city of Raqqah.

Government units backed by popular forces on Sunday continued military operations in several areas around the country, recapturing new zones and thwarting terrorist attacks.

In Lattakia, army units, in cooperation with popular defense groups, established control over Points 287, 397 and 409 and killed terrorist elements in the al-Sawda village.

A military source told state-run SANA news agency that the army units also foiled an attack by terrorist groups on military posts in the direction of al-Qalaa Mountain and Ain al-Baida area in the province.

Elsewhere, scores of Daesh terrorists were killed or injured as a result of army airstrikes on their positions in the northeastern Raqqah province.

On Saturday, Syrian forces retook control of Jubeil mount that overviews Qaryateen village in the suburbs of Homs, SANA reported.
