One day after repelling the massive counter-offensive launched by the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social National Party (SSNP), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian resistance) – cleared the village of ‘Ateiri in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia after a violent battle on Tuesday morning.

According to the battlefield correspondent Iyad Al-Hussein, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies control all of ‘Ateiri and its surrounding hills, despite claims made by social media activists from the Syrian Opposition about the capture of this strategic village by the Islamist rebels near the Turkish border.

In addition to clearing ‘Ateiri in the Turkmen Mountains, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – alongside Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra and the National Defense Forces – imposed full control over the village of Murayj on Monday night, resulting in the death of a number of members from Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army.

Currently, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies are advancing along two different axes in northern Latakia, as they look to seal off the Idlib border.
