Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – have imposed full control over the strategic town of Ghannam in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia.

According to a military source from the National Defense Forces inside the town of Slunfeh, the Syrian Armed Forces entered Ghannam earlier this morning after intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigades” and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at the southern axis of this town – he added that the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Hind Helicopter Gunships led the way for the complete capture of Ghannam.

With Ghannam under their full control, the Syrian Armed Forces have positioned themselves along the strategic Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4 Highway) that is mostly under the control of the Islamist rebels – the bulk of this highway goes through the Idlib Governorate, which is under the complete of the Islamist rebels.

The Syrian Armed Forces will now focus on the remaining territory in Jabal Turkmen that is under the control of the Islamist rebels; this includes the imperative town of Al-Rabi’yah that is considered the headquarters of the Free Syrian Army’s Coastal Division.
