BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:35 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham have been mobilizing their forces in the northeastern countryside of Latakia for a new offensive against the government forces.
A military official told Al-Masdar News on Wednesday night that Syrian Arab Army drones captured images of jihadist rebel reinforcements arriving to the Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains) and Jisr Al-Shughour regions along the Latakia-Idlib axis.
According to the military official, the Syrian Arab Army expects the jihadist rebels to launch offensives in both Jabal Al-Akrad and Sahel Al-Ghaab (Al-Ghaab Plain).
This latest mobilization of forces in northeast Latakia comes around the same time the jihadist rebels fired over 25 rockets towards the Russian military bases inside the southwestern part of the province.
With Spring descending upon the vast mountains of Latakia, the jihadist rebels will take advantage of the rain and poor visibility to attack the government forces.
