After weeks of clashes, Syrian forces have wiped out al-Nusra Front militants from the mountainous regions in the northern part of Latakia province alongside the Syrian-Turkish border.

The Syrian Army announced it defeated terrorists from the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front north of Latakia, near the border with Turkey.

"Al-Nusra as one of the strongest terrorist group in Syria has withdrawn from its strongholds near the border with Turkey," an army source told FARS News.

The anti-terrorist operation by the Syrian Army in Latakia has been supported by Russian airstrikes since September 30.

On Thursday, aircraft of the Russian Air Force intensified their airstrikes against positions of the Takfiri terrorists in the province of Latakia, destroying a group of terrorists.

A large group of militants were killed and injured in Russian airstrikes on terrorists' positions in the northern part of Latakia.
