Latakia, Syria (5:00 A.M.) The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh, led by Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, launched a new offensive on Wednesday night to capture the Zuwayqat Mountains and its surrounding points in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in the Latakia Governorate, Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies stormed Tal Zuwayqat on the Kabbani axis tonight, resulting in a fierce battle with the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard forces and Marines.

Despite some claims made by Syrian opposition activists, the jihadist rebels have not captured anything in the Zuwayqat Mountains, including Point 1154.

While the battle is still ongoing at the moment, sources from the Syrian Arab Army have asserted that no ground has been lost to the jihadist rebels and that they have suffered minimal casualties.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) is currently launching airstrikes against the jihadist rebels in order to weaken their resolve and help drive them back from the Zuwayqat Mountains.
