The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigades” have recaptured the villages of Sarif and Da’da’an in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside after launching a counter-attack against the Syrian Armed Forces this afternoon in order to recover their lost territory in Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains).

Currently, the Islamist rebels are attempting to recapture several points lost near Jabal Beit Fares; these mountain points were lost to the Syrian Armed Forces two days ago, when the latter launched a powerful assault on their defensive positions.
