BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new attack this week on the strategic mountaintop town of Kabani in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate.

Led by the 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army began their attack by storming the defenses of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party at the southern axis of Kabani in a bid to enter the town.

However, following a fierce battle that lasted for a few hours on Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army was forced to withdraw from the southern axis of Kabani.

According to a military source near Kabani, the Syrian Army stormed Kabani in a bid to test the jihadist defenses at the town; however, he could not provide any details on the casualties.

In the past, the Syrian Arab Army has attempted to capture Kabani on several occasions, but all of these attacks would later be repelled by the jihadist rebels.

Due to Kabani’s high elevation and proximity to the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour, its capture by the Syrian Army has been a high priority for the military’s high command.
