BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) -The Syrian military heavily attacked the jihadist stronghold of Kabani in northeastern Latakia this week, following the collapse of the conditional ceasefire.

 

The northeastern region of Latakia has been a hot zone for military activity since 2012; its large presence of foreign jihadist combatants also makes its security a high priority for the Syrian Army’s command.

Currently, two major jihadist groups are active in northeastern Latakia: Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

The Turkestan Islamic Party is primarily comprised of foreign jihadists that have fought at several fronts in northern Syria, including northern Latakia and western idlib.

Los Houtis en Yemen son mucho mejores que el ejercito regular de Siria, en los videos de Houtis se observa como asaltan las montañas para expulsar al ejercito de la Monarquía Saudi.

@ Nestor, I agree with you to an extent. However Saudi Army regulars & their mercenaries paid by Saudi are not in the same league as HTS & TIP & JAI these Syrian Jihadis local as well as foreign fighters are highly trained & highly motivated and ferocious fighters all ready to die for their Jihadi beliefs unlike the saudis fighters who don’t have their heart in the Yemeni war and are forced to be there in yemen due to their monarch’s order and given an option they would prefer to run and be back home.
