The Syrian Marines, alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), continued their advance in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia on Wednesday night, capturing several sites from the jihadist rebels near the Turkish border-crossing.

According to a local military source, the Syrian Armed Forces captured Shahrourah village and points 469, 502, and 559 in the Turkmen Mountains after a violent night battle with the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Jaysh Al-Turkmen.

The Syrian Armed Forces were able to capitalize on the gains they made the previous day, when they captured the hilltop village of ‘Ayn ‘Issa near the government stronghold of Saraf in the Turkmen Mountains.

It seems that turkmens are furious about ErdoGollum and calling him a traitor : they weren’t allowed to fold back into Turkey as usual and now are back to the wall at the border!
