BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in northern Latakia Friday, resulting in the capture of their weapons and the death of a couple soldiers.
Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham elements, the jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s post at the hilltops of Talat Al-Ziyarah in the Jabal Turkmen region of Latakia.
This attack by the jihadist rebels resulted in the death of two soldiers and the capture of their rifles and ammunition.
Following the attack, the jihadist rebels quickly retreated from the Syrian Army’s post to friendly lines in the Jabal Turkmen region.
Friday’s attack by the jihadist rebels marks the first time this month that they have conducted a raid like this on a Syrian Arab Army post in the northern countryside of the Latakia.
