The Syrian army has managed to win back control of several areas in the coastal province of Latakia, as government forces continue their operations against the Takfiri militants operating in Syria.

Government forces took control of Kherbet al-Joba, a hill code-named 1023, and the al-Takhan district, killing a number of militants and destroying their weapons and ammunition, Syria’s official news agency SANA said.

The recapture came a day after Syrian forces took back the villages of al-Sarraf and Beit Fares and the al-Harra mountain along with several farms in the Latakia countryside.

O Friday, Syrian forces killed at least 30 terrorists of the so-called Jaish al-Fateh group in the Hama countryside, including a senior commander of Jaish al-Fateh identified as Abu Bakr al-Asadi.

A military source said the army also destroyed mortar launchers, vehicles and anti-aircraft guns belonging to militants, and killed and injured scores of Takfiris in the al-Manshiya neighborhood of Dara’a Province.

According to al-Ahed News Website, militants from Jaish al-Islam were killed and injured in Syrian air raids in eastern Ghouta, a Damascus countryside. The Lebanese news website also said the Syrian air attacks hit militant positions in the provinces of Aleppo, Deir Ezzur and Homs; Press TV reported.
