On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – carried out a powerful assault on the Islamist rebels of “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) at Al-Kabeer, killing 16 enemy combatants inside this town in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside.

According to a military source in Latakia, the Syrian Armed Forces destroyed three armored vehicles mounted with a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun, while also clearing a small hilltop before noon on Friday.
