Latakia, Syria (12:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces, backed by Hezbollah, launched an offensive to capture the key town of Kabbani in the Jabal Al-Akrad region of northeastern Latakia on Friday.

Led by the Syrian Marines and Desert Hawks Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah launched their assault on Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) defenses at the Zuwayqat Mountains that overlook Kabbani.

Initially, they were able to impose full control over the Zuwayqat Mountains; however, the jihadist rebels were able to forestall the Syrian Army’s advance and recapture the aforementioned site after conducting their own counter-assault.

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces will likely make another attempt to capture Kabbani from the jihadist rebels in the coming days.

you mixed up cities @leithfadel. You meant Kabanah instead of Kinsibba.

Not again. If a plan after the -th time fails, change it.

Pretty sure you accidentally said Kinsibba when you meant Kabbani in the first two paragraphs

After Salma, Jisr Al Shughour was next supposedly! This little village cannot be taken by the SAA, let alone the above.
