BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has refused to let up their attacks against the foreign jihadists currently occupying the Latakia-Turkey border in northwestern Syria.

Led by their 42nd Brigade from the 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army has repeatedly struck the defenses of the Turkestan Islamic Party and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in northeast Latakia, as they look to launch a large-scale offensive against the militants in the coming weeks.

In a new video posted by the Sputnik News Agency’s Arabic-language channel on YouTube, the Syrian Army can be seen targeting the jihadist defenses near the key town of Kabani, which is considered a stronghold for these extremist groups in northeastern Latakia.

Over the last few days, both the Syrian military and Russian Air Force have intensified their strikes on Kabani and the Turkish border, inflicting heavy damage on the jihadist defenses in the process.

The Russian Air Force has especially been involved in these strikes, as it is their jets and choppers that continue to attack the jihadist movements and bases all along this mountainous area near the Idlib Governorate.
