The Syrian army seized back a new key height in the countryside of Lattakia as the troops continue to purge several areas across the country of the terrorists.
The Syrian army regained control of al-Gharz height in the Northern countryside of Lattakia on Tuesday, according to the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television.
Earlier, the Syrian Army alongside the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) won battles against the militant groups in at least eight fronts in Lattakia province, and restored security to vast territories, sources said Tuesday.
The Syrian army and the NDF fighters seized full control over Al-Moroj, Jabal Beit Ahmad, Jabal al-Qrima, Juret al-Mai, Beit Marouf, Beit Najib Bshara, Ketf al-Ghanma and al-Rashwan in Lattakia province after defeating the militant groups and forcing them to leave the abovementioned areas, the sources said.
They further added that the terrorist groups left behind scores of dead or wounded members and destroyed military hardware and fled the battlefronts.
On Monday, the Syrian army took a wide stride in seizing back control over the Aleppo-Lattakia highway and is now very close to the town of al-Salma.
The Syrian troops won control of another 12 kilometers along the Aleppo-Lattakia highway after capturing al-Zawik mountain in the Southwestern parts of the province of Aleppo.
The army units are now very close to Salma town as they have pushed back Takfiri terrorists from more areas in the region.
