BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels in the Jabal Al-Akrad region near the Turkish border have unleashed a plethora of missiles towards the southern part of Latakia city.
According to a source inside Latakia, the jihadist rebels fired a number grad missiles towards the Ramel Jnoubi District in the provincial capital.
This missile attack resulted in heavy damage to a number of buildings, but the total number of casualties is still unknown at this time, the source added.
The last time the jihadist rebels attacked Latakia city, both the Russian and Syrian air forces retaliated by launching airstrikes over the Jisr al-Shughour region, which is under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and other militant groups.
These same jihadists have attempted to bomb the Hmeimim Airbase in southern Latakia on a number of occasions; however, their attacks are always repelled by the Russian military.
