The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Latakia City, and the Syrian Resistance – made several advances on Tuesday in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside after repelling the Islamist rebel offensive this past weekend in Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains).

On Tuesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies imposed full control over two villages at the southern rim of the Turkmen Mountains after a violent battle with Islamist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) – the villages were identified as Qassab and Burj Al-Qassab.

Not long after capturing the aforementioned villages, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies struck the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army again; this time at the nearby village of Beit Fares, which is situated directly west of Qassab and east of Jabal Al-Zweik (Al-Zweik Mountains).

Following the initial assault, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies (specifically the Syrian Social Nationalist Party) were able to impose full control over Beit Fares village, killing over 20 enemy combatants and seizing several assault rifles from the Islamist rebels.

The advances of the Syria Arab Army are impressive, considering how just a few months ago they were the victims of an unlimited supply of materiel and personnel to the terrorists who oppose them. Russia be thanked.
