Not long after the Syrian Army recaptured the jihadist stronghold of Kinsabba, the government forces also captured dozens of surrounding hills and several villages as it seems that the rebel front lines in Latakia are quickly falling apart. Two devastating ambushes struck the Islamist rebels prior to the storming of Kinsabba.

As it seems, the sheer focus of the Jaish Al-Fateh jihadist conglomeration on southwest Aleppo has weakened the rebel defense lines on many other fronts. If Jaish Al-Fateh does not act quickly, the jihadist forces stand to be expelled entirely from the coastal province.

Footage of the violent clashes could be observed in the video below:

Certainly the best time to attempt gains on this from this front. Hopefully this could lead to a new Kabani offensive as well. Aleppo will demand massive manpower from this rebel canton for a long time coming (anyone who thinks the battle for Aleppo will be over soon is an idiot)

Even if the SAA don’t ultimately succeed in Kinsibba, the front is a useful cats’ paw in diverting potential reinforcements from Aleppo to Latakia, especially if the SAA manages to get close to Jisr Al-Shughour

All the jihadis are flocking to Aleppo…leaving the other fronts with no manpower.

1- They will be easier to destroy if they are all at the same place
2- They will lose ground everywhere else.

Not so smart.

Hamza can’t make maps. Please stop using them, you lose credibility.
