The Syrian army troops backed by popular sources took control over another region in Latakia province on Thursday that is of much strategic value.

The Syrian army gained control of the height 489.5 after capturing Height 465.5 in al-Kabir Black Mountain in the Northern countryside of Latakia.

The recapture of the height came after fierce clashes with the militants that left a large group of the terrorists dead and injured.

Height 489.5 is on the Eastern side of the town of Attira around 1.5 km away from the al-Saraf town, which is a major crossing leading to Jabal (mount) Zahia that is used by the terrorists.

On Wednesday, the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces won back a strategic point in the Northern countryside of Latakia after fierce clashes with the terrorists.

The Syrian forces managed to take full control over point 458.5 in the direction of al-Kabir Black Mountain in the Northern countryside of Latakia on Wednesday after clashes with the terrorists, informed sources said.

A large group of terrorists were killed and injured in the clashes, the sources added; FNA reported.
