In a statement, the General Command said the most notable of the aforementioned towns and villages are al-Ghnaimiye, al-Qalai’e, Beit Sukkar, al-Ouainat, Khan al-Joz, Beit Riha, Bradon, al-Souda, al-Khadra, Reef Mekhtaro, al-Jamousiye, al-Saraya, al-Rayyana, al-Shakria, and a number of vantage points and hills covering an area of over 120 square kilometers, and this was achieved after eliminating large numbers of terrorists while others fled towards the Turkish borders as their ranks suffered a complete breakdown.
The statement pointed out that the significance of this achievement lies in the fact that if follows up on the achievements made by the Armed Forces in Lattakia’s northern countryside during the past few days, particularly since Rabi’a area was one of the biggest gathering points and a nexus for transportation for terrorists in the area, therefore establishing control over it cut off terrorists’ supply lines and restricted their movement.
The General Command said that establishing control over Rabi’a area forms a springboard for eliminating the remaining terrorist groups in Lattakia’s countryside, concluding by asserting commitment to continue fighting terrorism and calling on all those who were involved in bearing arms against the state to abandon their weapons and resolve their legal status before it’s too late.
