The Syrian Arab Army announced on Friday that its troops alongside popular forces have not left any safe place for the militants of al-Nusra Front in the mountainous regions in the Northern parts of Lattakia province bordering Turkey after weeks of clashes and mop-up operations.

The army said that the Syrian government forces won all battles against the al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front North of Lattakia near the border with Turkey.

“Al-Nusra as one of the strongest terrorist group in Syria has withdrawn from its strongholds near the border with Turkey,” the army source added.

12 December 2015 ~ The Syrian army made great advances in Lattakia mountains near the border with Turkey where it found Turkey-supplied food supplies in the positions taken from the Nusra Front terrorist group.

The Syrian government forces’ anti-terrorism operations in Lattakia have always been backed up by the Russian warplanes since September 30.

On Thursday, the Russian fighter jets intensified their airstrikes on positions of the Takfiri militants in the Coastal Province of Lattakia, leaving a group of terrorists dead.

A large group of terrorists were killed and injured in Russian airstrikes on militants’ positions in Jabal al-Turkman (Turkman Mountain) and Jabal al-Akrad (Al-Akrad Mountain) in the Northern part of Lattakia.

The sources said that after 3 years of closure the Syrian government forces reopened Lattakia-Kassab highway.

“The recapture of Turkmen mountain (Jabal al-Turkmen) by the Syrian forces played a significant role in reopening the highway,” the military source further added.

Earlier reports said that the militant groups withdrew from one of the tops of al-Koz mountain and Height 713 in the Northern side of al-Khdra village after the Russian fighter jets bombed their positions and the government forces broke through their defense lines.

The militant groups left behind scores of dead and wounded members and fled the battlefields.
