The Syrian air force started a new round of attacks on the terrorist groups’ supply routes in the Northern parts of Lattakia, inflicting major casualties on the militants.
Terrorist groups’ positions in Heights 1154 and 1112, Kabani, Zahar and Kafr Sando came under the large-scale attacks of the Syrian warplanes on Thursday.
“The air force targeted the militants’ vehicles and military vehicles, equipped with machineguns, in Heights 1154 and 1112, Kabani, Zahar and Kafr Sando, killing all inside them,” military sources said.
Media sources disclosed on Tuesday that the terrorist groups were collecting a large number of fresh fighters in mountainous regions in Northeastern Lattakia to carry out a large-scale offensive in the next few days.
“Terrorist groups try to open new front in government-held regions in Lattakia. In the meantime, militants are planning to launch heavy shelling on government positions in coastal cities and towns of Lattakia province with the Grad missiles they have received from their regional backers,” the sources said.
“The terrorists have targeted army positions in Jabal Abu Ali, Jabal Qamou’a and Shillif forts with Grad missiles and mortars,” they added.
Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) and al-Turkistani groups have deployed forces in Northern and Northeastern Lattakia and are receiving arms and ammunition from Turkish territories.
