Not long after the Syrian Army captured Shillif and Toubal castles in the vicinity of Kinsabba, the army was able to secure the key town in the northeastern countryside of the coastal province.

Local jihadist forces retreated from the town after their reinforcement convoy was ambushed, and to avoid being hunted under the fire control of the Syrian Army from the nearby hills.

In actuality, the town had been empty for hours, but units from the Syrian Army were instructed not to enter it until a certain advance on the Kabani axis happened to ensure no VBIED breach occurs like what happened the last time the Syrian Army captured the Latakian village.

This is outdated, Kinsibba was recaptured by rebels a few hours ago in a counter attack

I read that too. Recaptured. Might be the other way around now.

Hopefully it stays under their control this time.

Maybe Kinsibba is one of those places, which is easier to take, then to defend.

Kensibba was already captured in february 2016, six months ago.
Too few soldiers…

@leithfadel Let’s hope SAA can make the best out of it while jihadists forces are concentrated in Aleppo.
