The Islamist rebels from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, Harakat Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army’s “Suqour Al-Ghaab” launched a counter-attack at the strategic town of Jubb Al-Ahmar in the Prophet Jonah (Jabal Nabi Younis) of northeastern Latakia, resulting in a series of intense firefights between the aforementioned Islamist groups and the civilian-led “National Defense Forces” (NDF) this morning.

Leading the attack at Jubb Al-Ahmar, Harkaat Ahrar Al-Sham attempted to bypass the National Defense Forces’ frontline positions at this imperative town; however, the Russian Air Force put an end to this plan after they struck the Islamist rebels with a number of airstrikes on Saturday morning in northeast Latakia.

Unfortunately for the Islamist rebels in northeastern Latakia, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to recover the entire town after a series of firefights and airstrikes from the Russian Air Force; this resulted in the death of over 20 enemy combatants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jabhat Al-Nusra, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab,

Elsewhere, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their advance inside the integral city of Salma, capturing more building blocks from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra at the southern district.

As the firefights continue between the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra, both parties will strive to gain the upper-hand in Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains).
