BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new attack on the strategic mountaintop town of Kabani this morning, targeting the southern defenses of this jihadist stronghold in northeast Latakia.

Backed by heavy airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Armored Division stormed the southeastern axis of Kabani in a bid to break through the defensive lines of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP).

According to a military source, this attack on Kabani is meant to test the defenses of the jihadist forces and seek to gain a new launching point for their future offensive on the town.

No advance has been reported by the Syrian Arab Army.

In May, the Syrian Arab Army repeatedly tried to capture Kabani, but they were repelled each time by the jihadist forces.

  1. Offensive on Allepo-Idlib must not stop. There is not way to may peace with the enemy when the enemy is still in Syria land. Until getting the total defeating of the enemy, one may talk to them about peace. Terrorists, Turkish (NATO) and Kurds (USA-puppets) must leave Syria.
