The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – have begun the integral battle to take control of Kabani in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad) after they seized the hilltop village of Yaqoubar from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) earlier this week.

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies struck the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army inside Jabal Zuwayqat, resulting in an intense firefight between the opposing forces at this mountaintop’s southern perimeter.

The military source added that the mountaintop of Jabal Zuwayqat is situated directly south of Kabani and just north of the recently captured village of Yaqoubar in Jabal Al-Akrad.

If the Syrian Armed Forces are successful in taking control of Kabani, they will have effectively bypassed the eastern perimeter of Al-Sirmaniyah, leaving them in position to strike this aforementioned town in the Idlib Governorate from two different flanks (southern and eastern flanks).

The Islamist rebels cannot afford to lose Kabani to the Syrian Armed Forces; especially, after they conceded the vital villages of ‘Ikko and Yaqoubar over the last two weeks.

Fantastic news! May all people of faith diligently pray for God to give great protection, strategies, and fighting effectiveness to every pro-Assad govt soldier and pilot. He is not named many times the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY in Holy Scripture for nothing!
