The recent arrival of reinforcements to northeast Latakia prompted the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to launch a major assault on the strategic town of Kabani in Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains) tonight.

Leading the charge at Kabani overnight was the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard, who recently returned to this front after a short leave of absence.

The 103rd Brigade – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and the Syrian Marines – began the assault by attacking Kabani from two different flanks, resulting in a violent battle with the extremist rebels.

This assault would intensify when the extremist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) received necessary reinforcements from their opposition allies in Jisr Al-Shughour; these groups were identified as the Free Syrian Army’s “Al-Ghaab Hawks Brigade” and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and extremist rebels are engaged in a violent overnight battle that is meant to pave the way for the government forces to enter Kabani.
