(FNA) ~ Syrian Army and the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF), backed up by the Russian warplanes, pushed back the militant groups from nearly 200 kilometers of land in the coastal province of Lattakia, military sources said Monday.
The sources said that after a ten-day-long period of joint operation, carried out by the pro-government forces and the significant role of the Russian bombardments, the militants retreated their forces from almost 200 kilometers of Lattakia’ territories.
The 10-day-long operation inflicted heavy casualties on the militant groups, whose military grid also sustained large damage.
On Sunday, the Syrian army and popular forces purged the terrorists and advanced to areas near the Turkish borders.
The Syrian sources in the battlefield said that the Syrian army took control of Zahia heights in the Northern countryside of Lattakia, 2km from the joint borders with Turkey.
The Syrian army, supported by Russia, has launched massive airstrikes against the terrorists’ hideouts in the countryside of Lattakia.
The Syrian troops made major advances in different parts of Lattakia in the past few days after pushing back terrorists from their positions across the coastal province and killed several groups of militants, including their senior commanders.
