BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:25 A.M.) – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham launched an attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northeastern countryside of Latakia, Sunday, violating terms of the ceasefire that was mediated between Russia, Turkey, and Iran.
According to a military source in Latakia, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham fired a barrage of Katuysha missiles and artillery shells at the Syrian Army’s positions in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad).
The source added that the primary target for the jihadist rebels was the Shalf castle, which sits atop of the Kurdish Mountains.
This abrupt attack resulted in the wounding of at least a half dozen men, prompting the Syrian Arab Army to reinforce the area, despite not responding directly.
Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s attack in northeastern Latakia comes just hours after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s Shari’ah spokesman, ‘Abdullah Al-Muhaysni, stated that the two jihadist factions will be launching an offensive against the Syrian Army in the near future.
