The Syrian Marines, backed by the Desert Hawks Brigade (Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra), reportedly captured three hilltop villages from the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia tonight.

According to a media correspondent that is embedded with the Desert Hawks Brigade in northern Latakia, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the villages of Ruwaysat Rasho, Sher Al-Dab’aa, ‘Ayn Bidda after a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Fateh near the key hilltop of Tal Qal’at.

Despite the good news for the Syrian Armed Forces at the Jabal Turkmen axis, the situation at Kinsibba is repeatedly very tense as Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) attempts to recapture this imperative mountaintop town in the Kurdish Mountains.

How did it go from ready to take kabani and ikko and go on to sirmaniyah and jisr to retreating slowly from everything they seized? Sad

Yep, Al Masdar got all excited ages ago about Salma and then Kinsibba getting taken, so that Jisr was next, but…… nothing. Nothing happened. They completely stopped the momentum and allowed the enemy to stiffen their defences. Even now, right after these gains, Masdar have just announced that the SAA have yet again fled from Kinsibba, the army’s a joke.

This is tactical retreat : when you have not the time to serious entrench the place, if there’s a massive offensive, better retreat where you can defend instead of having big casualties so you can fight another day.

Ithink the Syrian marines attack using air and artuilery cover and take the poinys a few days later the terrorists attack massively sacrificing dozens of fighter and the Marines retreat
let them come and take the place then okaster them with airstrikes and artillery and missile batteries until they lost a lot of men and then swiftly reoccupy the place ,Syrian marines have taken light vasualitis here whils terrorist have lost hunderds of men killed and woumded over
last moth here ,
