The Syrian Army units backed by popular forces managed to liberate another village in rugged areas North of Latakia province, military sources said on Tuesday.

Keeping on their advances in areas under the control of terrorists in Northern Latakia, the Syrian soldiers established control over Ain Basour village between two towns of Shalaf and Kinsibba in Northern Latakia province.

"The Syrian Army forces recaptured the village after engaging in heavy battles with militants and inflicting heavy damage and casualties on them," the military sources said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Syrian Army and their popular allies in an intensive operation managed to take back more territories including two major towns in the Northern regions of Latakia province from militants' grip.

The pro-government forces, in heavy clashes with terrorists forced them to retreat from Jerjes and Tal al-Ahmar heights, established control over the two key towns of Balleh and Shalaf Southwest of Kinsibba in the Northern parts of Latakia province.

During the operation, militants sustained heavy casualties and their military hardware including several heavy machine-gun equipped vehicles were seized or destroyed by the Syrian soldiers and their allies, FNA reported.
