BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is currently on the offensive in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate, as they look to clear this jihadist-held area west of the Idlib Governorate.

Over the last ten days, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Armored Division has been working to crack the lines of the jihadist rebels near the town of Kabani.

However, despite the intensity of these attacks, the Syrian Army has been unable to achieve any major breakthroughs along this mountainous terrain in northeastern Latakia.

As shown in the video below, the Syrian Army troops are engaged in a fierce fight with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

With a large number of reinforcements arriving to the Zuwayqat Mountain axis this week, the Syrian Army is expected to make another major push to capture Kabani from the jihadist rebels.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. — Albert Einstein
Instead of trying to take Kabani, the SAA should take everything around it, cut off their supplies and shut off the power.

Once Kabani is liberated the whole front will be shattered and likely peace talks seriously undertaken.

Syria has enough technology, men, and Russia aerospace support to be able to take Kabini. This will be a strong set back to terrorists that will run to Turkey (NATO member) for protection. However, Russia aerospace force can kill them on the run.
