The Syrian army troops backed by popular forces killed several al-Nusra Front terrorists in a strategic village in Latakia, mostly resided by the Syrian Kurds.

"4 militants from al-Nusra Front and their allies were killed in conflicts with the army in the strategic village of Kabani inside Jabal al-Akrad (Kurds Mountain) in the Northern countryside of Latakia," a battlefield source reported on Thursday.

The Syrian army announced on Wednesday that its troops and their popular allies have launched the last phase of their large-scale operation in an area Northeast of Latakia to conquer the last strongholds of the militants at the province's border with Idlib.

"The Syrian army, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the 48th Special Forces Regiment, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Marines launched the final assault on the strategic village of Kabani," the army said.

"The Syrian Armed Forces have attacked the militants from two different directions and looking to break-through the enemy’s lines of defense near the village of Ikko," the army added.

If Kabani is captured, the Syrian Armed Forces will be in position to liberate the strategic village of al-Sirmaniyeh from al-Nusra Front, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army (FSA); FNA reported.
