BEIRUT, LÍBANO (11:20 P.M.) – El Ejército Árabe Sirio (SAA) está intentando consolidar sus ganancias en el noreste de Latakia esta noche en un intento por capturar la fortaleza yihadista de Kabani.

Respaldado por los ataques aéreos rusos, el ejército sirio ha recuperado una vez más la iniciativa al sur de Kabani mientras sus tropas intentan asegurar la montaña Zuwayqat después de una batalla de un día.

Según una fuente militar cerca de la línea del frente, el ejército árabe sirio pudo repeler la contraofensiva yihadista a principios de esta noche, allanando el camino para que sus tropas hicieran otro empuje hacia el eje sur de Kabani.

La fuente agregó que el Ejército Árabe Sirio está tratando de asegurar las cumbres al sur de Kabani antes de hacer el esfuerzo de ingresar a esta ciudad estratégica en la cima de la montaña cerca de la frontera administrativa de Idlib.

Kabani se encuentra en uno de los picos más altos de Latakia; Su proximidad a la región norte de la ciudad de Al-Ghaab Plain y Jisr Al-Shughour hace que su captura sea una alta prioridad para el ejército sirio.
