The Syrian Army troops and the National Defense Forces (NDF) raided the militant groups in the Northeastern part of Latakia province and retook Ruwaysat al-Deibat from the terrorists, military sources said Wednesday.


“The militant groups were forced by the army and the NDF to retreat from Ruwaysat al-Deibat, leaving behind many dead or wounded members,” the sources said.

“The Syrian government force took full control over the position of the militants in the battlefront and seized a large volume of their ammunition,” the sources added.

“Some of the army soldiers sustained injuries in the attack.”

“The army is fortifying its new positions to defense possible counter-attacks of the militants,” they went on to say.

The Syrian government forces have advanced against the militant groups across the mountainous regions in Northern and Northeastern parts of the coastal province, including along border with Turkey.

Battlefield sources said on Tuesday that remaining centers of the militant groups in the mountainous regions of Latakia province have been under massive attacks by the Russian warplanes, leaving no opportunity for the terrorists to fortify their positions.

“The Russian bombers, in several combat sorties, targeted the gathering centers of the militant groups, in the rural area in Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen regions, which claimed the lives of many militant and wounded some more,” the sources said.

The sources further added that the Syrian army's artillery units also shelled the strongholds of the militant groups in Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen regions, killing and wounding many terrorist.

“The militant groups have been pinned down in their positions as a result of coordinated attacks of Russian air fleet and the Syrian artillery and cannot regroup or find better shelters;” FNA reported.
