Hundreds of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces have been pouring into northeastern Latakia to prepare for the long-awaited offensive to retake the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour in the Idlib Governorate.

On Sunday morning, 700 more soldiers arrived to the Kabani front where the Syrian Armed Forces have positioned themselves for the final assault against the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

The Syrian Armed Forces have launched a number of attacks to infiltrate the enemy defenses near Kabani; however, they have found limited success due to constant offensives by Jabhat Al-Nusra near Jabal Turkmen.

Every time Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies attack Jabal Turkmen, the Syrian Arab Army is forced to redeploy soldiers to this front in order to beat back the extremist rebels.

With these reinforcements, the Syrian Armed Forces can alleviate the pressure on Jabal Turkmen and zero-in on the imperative town of Kabani in Jabal Al-Akrad.

Only the sunni islamist terrorists and their supoorters. In case you do not know, the vast majority of the Syrian armed forces and Pro-Assad population is Sunni. Yes, this is a sectarian war, by the terrorists ( “rebels”) against all non-sunni Syrians, but not by the government. It is defending Syria against terrorist scum supported by a gang of criminals, namely Turkey, Saudis, Qatar, UAE, NATO, Obama, McCain, UK, France, Israel.
