Moments ago in the Latakia Governorate's northern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army's 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard - in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Muqawama Souri - imposed full control over two mountaintops along the Turkmen Mountains (Jabal Al-Turkmen) after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

According to the latest reports from the Latakia Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army's 103rd Brigade and their allies seized Jabal Kazbar and Jabal Al-Sindiyan in the Turkmen Mountains, killing several enemy combatants in the process of this advance today.

The source added that these mountaintops (Jabal Kazbar and Jabal Al-Sindiyan) in Jabal Al-Turkmen are located near the strategic town of Al-Rabi'yah, which is also considered the Free Syrian Army's primary stronghold in the Latakia Governorate's northern countryside.

These two mountaintops are also situated just south of the Turkish border with Latakia; this means that the Syrian Army is very close to sealing off the entire Turkish border with the Latakia Governorate.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are advancing from two different axes in the Latakia Governorate: Jabal Al-Akrad and Jabal Al-Turkmen.

map with names in text would be great. I disagree that SAA is close to sealing the border. From the map there is quite a way to go, and Jisr is still in rebel hands.

“which is also considered the Free Syrian Army’s primary stronghold in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside” Sorry, in reality there is no something called Free Syrian Army, they are terrorists and they should be called what they are
