All-or-nothing battle immerses strategic Latakia town

18 July 2016 16:42



The battle for the key town of Kinsibba is under way, as both the Syrian Armed Forces and Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) trade blows in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside.

Over the weekend, the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh recaptured Kinsibba and its surrounding hills after launching a counter-attack against the Syrian Armed Forces.

However, on Sunday, the Syrian Marines, alongside the Desert Hawks Brigade and National Defense Forces, conducted another wide-scale assault to retake Kinsibba and all the sites they lost the day prior to this attack.

Initial reports indicated that the Syrian Armed Forces captured the town; however, a military source told Al-Masdar News on Monday morning that intense fighting is still ongoing inside of Kinsibba.

For both parties; this battle taking place inside Kinsibba is the most important firefight taking place in northern Latakia.

Should either side lose the town; it would spell catastrophe for them, as the sheer loss of life and resources will force one party to begin a mass retreat.
