Latakia, Syria (4:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Marines, backed by the Desert Hawks Brigade and National Defense Forces (NDF), captured a key point in the northeastern Latakia countryside tonight after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).

According to ground activists in the Jabal Al-Akrad region of northeastern Latakia, the Syrian Armed Forces seized the strategic Shilaf Castle that overlooks the key mountaintop town of Kinsibba.

Shilaf Castle’s location makes it one of the most important points to the Syrian Armed Forces near the contested town of Kinsibba.

The Syrian Armed Forces attempted to capture Kinsibba on Thursday night; however, they were repelled by the Jaysh Al-Fateh jihadists after a long battle.
