Sun Feb 28, 2016 19:28:55

The Syrian commandoes pushed the militant groups back from their positions in the Northern part of the coastal province of Latakia and won back one more strategic height overlooking Turkey.

The Syrian army, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the Syrian Marines, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Liwa Suqour al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) imposed full control over Talat al-Nawareh after a tough battle with the terrorists of al-Nusra Front, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade”.

With both Saraf and Tal Nawareh captured, the Syrian Armed Forces are inching closer to seizing the remaining border points that have been under the control of the extremist rebels since the summer of 2012.

More importantly, with the capture of the remaining border points in Northern Lattakia, the Syrian Armed Forces are now on the verge of taking full control over the entire province.

Earlier reports said today that the militant groups left behind scores of dead and wounded members and fled their strongholds in the Northern part of Latakia province after coming under heavy attacks by the Syrian Army and National Defense Forces.

The Syrian government forces engaged in a tough battle with the terrorists of al-Nusra Front and forced them to pull fighters back from the small town of al-Saraf in the Northwestern side of Rabei'eh.

Al-Saraf is now under the full control of the Syrian army and popular fighters, FNA reported.
