After 12 hours of incessant clashes on six separate fronts, the Syrian Army, composed mainly of the Marines and Desert Hawks, liberated the strategic town of Kinsibba and all its hills and castles.

The operation was said to be very complicated and pictures and videos are to emerge of the massive operation.

Kinsibba was captured by the jihadist forces on July 1st after a massive offensive that left hundreds of jihadists killed and injured. Holding the town was not any less bloody. Many died beating back government attempts at recapturing the town.

The Syrian Army has not yet halted its advance on the Latakia front.

Seems, that for rebels both capturing and holding Kinsabba have cost hundreds, but for SAA the same was like a walk in the park, right? May be some soldiers were at least injured?

I suppose it depends on the character of operation. Say, if SAA extensively used artillery and air strikes before storming, rebels would’ve been seriously weakened and, possibly, they retreated from some positions even before close quarters fight.
Sorry for my English.

SAA should advance more intense, because in Turkey is chaos. This is good opportunity.
