BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has rebounded in the northern countryside of the Latakia Governorate after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels in the Turkmen Mountains.

Prior to the Syrian Army’s counter-offensive, the jihadist rebels managed to capture a hilltop and town in the Turkmen Mountains after beginning their operation last night.

Once these areas were captured, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) began launching heavy strikes over the jihadist positions, forcing most of them to abandon their posts before they could fortify their positions.

Following the air force strikes, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF), swept through the captured areas and eliminated the last militants that were still present at these sites.

This latest militant offensive marks the first time in over a year that they have launched an operation in the Latakia Governorate.

Lamentable, esto es consecuencia de mucho conversación distractiva por parte de Erdogan con el gobierno Ruso, mientra ocurre ello, los terroristas se fortalecen, siempre lo dije.
Ya basta de distraerse con conversaciones falsas, erradicar una ves por todas a los terroristas traidores y luego poner en la mira hacia Israel.

I doubt the roaches still benefit for more than Turkish+Qatar backing : Barak HUSSEIN Obama is gone and Turkey is in serious troubles with both USA, the EU, Israel, Egypt and even Libya… In case of any wrong move, the shooting party may start in East-Mediterranean sea, an I wouldn’t bet a buck on the future of a Turkey facing such a coalition…
