Syrian Armed Forces launched their long-anticipated northeastern Latakia offensive to capture the key jihadist-controlled town of Kabbani in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad).

Led by the Syrian Marines and Desert Hawks Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces stormed the Zuwayqat Mountains at the southern perimeter of Kabbani, where they were confronted by a host of jihadist fighters from Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham.

While the Syrian Armed Forces conduct their assault from the ground, the Russian Air Force is providing them necessary air support, as they pound Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham’s defenses around the Idlib axis.

Kabbani has long been a target for the Syrian Armed Forces; however, it is heavily fortified by the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) jihadists, due to its proximity to another important village: Al-Sirmaniyah

Both Kabbani and Al-Sirmaniyah are located along the path to the jihadist stronghold of Jisr Al-Shughour; this city has been under the control of Jaysh Al-Fateh since May 2015.
