On Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) carried out a series of powerful airstrikes above the Prophet Younis Mountains in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, killing a reported 47 enemy combatants from Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab (Al-Ghaab Hawks Brigade) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham at the town of Al-Souda near the strategic hilltop of Jubb Al-Ahmar.

According to a military source from the Syrian Air Defenses, the Syrian Air Force was provided satellite imagery from their Russian advisors, which in turn, displayed the movements of the Islamist rebel fighters between the Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate and the Prophet Younis Mountain of the Latakia Governorate.

As a result of this information provided from their Russian advisors, the Syrian Air Force was able to pinpoint the exact location of the Islamist rebel fighters and deliver a decisive blow on their positions; this resulted in the reported destruction of 7 armored vehicles.

Later in the day, the Syrian Air Force launched a series of airstrikes that targeted militant hideouts in the villages of Rweiset al-Kharb (west of Marj Shili), Akko, Kabani, Kibdin and at the city of Kinsabba in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside.

Elsewhere, an army unit carried out a special operation against an Islamist rebel group between Jabal Al-Nawba and Al-Shiekh Sa’id near the strategic city of Salma, which sits approximately 48 km to the east of Latakia city; this attack resulted in the death of all the Islamist rebel fighters and the destruction of a munitions cache.

According to SANA, 33 militants were killed during a Syrian Army operation that targeted a Jabhat Al-Nusra camp at the village of Al-‘Atira, which is located in the Al-Rabi’a area of northern Latakia.
