The Syrian Marines, backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), recaptured the strategic village of Saraf in the northern Latakia countryside after a violent battle with the jihadist rebels.

According to a military source in the northern Latakia countryside, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to seize Saraf after the jihadist rebels retreated from the northern peaks of Jabal Turkmen.

With Saraf under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces are now within striking distance of the Qal’at Mountains, which are located just south of the Turkish border-crossing.

In the coming days, the Syrian Armed Forces are expected to launch a major offensive to recapture several areas from the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Turkmen Islamic Party (TIP).
