Moments ago in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, 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) – imposed full control over the hilltops of Point 793 and Shayr Al-Sahaab after clashing with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

According to a military source from the 103rd Brigade in Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains), the Syrian Armed Forces seized Point 793 and Shayr Al-Sahaab after they advanced east from their positions at Jabal Al-Kaft, which is located on the border of the Idlib Governorate.

The capture of Point 793 and Shay Al-Sahaab means that the Syrian Armed Forces are officially overlooking the strategic town of Al-Sirmaniyah in the Idlib Governorate; this aforementioned town is the key to capturing the rebel stronghold of Jisr Al-Shughour and the Al-Ghaab Plains.

Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade captured the Al-Nuba Mountains (Jabal Al-Nuba) after a week long battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra; these mountains separate Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains) and Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains) from one another in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside.
