The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard has recently intensified their assault on the strategic town of Kabani in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate after a week long hiatus that was abruptly concluded when the government forces captured Jabal Al-Zuwayqat earlier this week.

On Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – backed by the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Syrian Marines – imposed full control over Hill 1154 at the southwestern perimeter of Kabani after a violent battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade” and “Al-Ghaab Hawks Brigade”.

As a result of their success at Hill 1154 inside Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains), the Syrian Armed Forces were able to advance on Kabani from three different flanks, leaving the extremist rebels with only one outlet to retreat from this strategic town.

The military strategy used by the Syrian Armed Forces at Kabani is similar to that of their previous battles at Ghammam, Salma, Kinsibba, and Al-Rabi’yah, meaning they will surround the enemy combatants and leave only one road for the latter to use in order to retreat from the fight.

This SAA strategy might be inspired by Russian military experts. This strategy has been used by Israel in past against Palestinian guerrillas.
