Lattakia: Syrian Army Defeated Al-Nusra Hard Attack
Sun May 1, 2016 18:37:51

The Syrian Army and National Defense Forces repelled an attack of the al-Nusra Front on their strongholds in the Northeastern part of Lattakia province, inflicting a heavy death toll on the terrorists.

A 150-member group of al-Nusra terrorists stormed the Syrian government forces' positions near Kinsibba, but their attacks were repelled by the Syrian soldiers and popular forces.

Under the heavy fire of pro-government forces, al-Nusra fled the battlefield leaving behind at least 25 dead members and many more wounded ones.  

In relevant developments in the coastal province on Saturday, the Syrian army continued its advances in the Northeastern part of Lattakia province, and seized back a number of strategic heights paving the way for taking full control of a key town there.

The army units are now in full control of Heights 1146, 1154 and 1112, as well as Zawiqat which overlook the strategic town of Kabani in Northeastern Lattakia.

The newly-liberated heights are important because they are located to the South, Southeast, and Southwest of Kabani town.

The winning back of Lattakia heights is a prelude to the Syrian army and popular forces' imminent operations to win back Kabani, FNA reported.
