Latakia

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:20 P.M.) – Fierce clashes broke out in the northern countryside of Latakia when the government troops fought off scores of jihadi militants who attempted to sneak into Syrian Army positions.

According to a military source, a group of al-Qaeda-linked militants launched their attack from Ain al-Hour village located some 5 km to the north of the government-held kansaba town on the latakia-Jisr al-Shughur highway.

The offensive, however, was successfully repelled after the Syrian Army killed and injured several militants; forcing them to retreat.

Last week, the elite 4th Armored Division was deployed to northern latakia to defend the area against recurrent violations by jihadi groups and launch a new assault.
