The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard and their allies are rolling through Latakia’s northeastern countryside today, as they continue their wide-scale advance towards the strategic village of Kinsibba in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad).

Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – imposed full control over the village of Mezzin in Jabal Al-Akrad after a violent battle with the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade” and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the village of Mezzin is situated to the west of Kinsibba and just north of Al-Ghunaymiyah in Jabal Al-Akrad.

In addition to the capture of Mezzin, the Syrian Armed Forces are currently storming the strategic villages of Ruweisat Al-Nimr and Touma; these sites are the gateway to the rebel stronghold of Kinsibba, which is located north of those villages.

News of the Syrian Armed Forces entering Touma has been denied by a source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade; however, they did add that clashes have intensified at the southern axis of this village.
