The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard and their allies are breezing past the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) inside northern Latakia, seizing an estimated 3/4 of the Turkmen Mountains (Jabal Al-Turkmen) in only 4 months of battle.

Following the capture of Rabi’yah last weekend, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies (specifically Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party) turned their attention to the strategic town of Kinsibba, which is situated just north of Salma in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad) of northeast Latakia.

However, the battle for Kinsibba has many benefits to the Syrian Armed Forces; if captured, the latter will be able to isolate the remaining territory under the Islamist rebel control and cutoff all supply routes from the Turkish border.

It is very likely that the Syrian Armed Forces capture the remaining territory in the Turkmen Mountains before they decide to cross the Latakia-Idlib axis and attack the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour.

While many Syrian Opposition activists argue that the Syrian Arab Army’s success is only due to the Islamist rebels withdrawing to preserve their fighters; it still does not explain the catastrophic collapse of their front-lines in 4 months.
