Over the last 48 hours, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade (commando brigade) of the Republican Guard and their allies have made significant progress in the northeastern Latakia countryside, seizing several hilltops and villages from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) “1st Coastal Division”.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – alongside the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Marines, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – imposed full control over the villages of Brouma and Mezzin in Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains) after a violent battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army.

Following the capture of Mezzin and ‘Ara, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party carried out their own operation near the Turkish border, seizing the ‘Umar bin Khattab camp from a Jabhat Al-Nusra brigade made-up of Turkmens in northeastern Latakia.

While the SSNP was busy capturing the ‘Umar bin Khattab Camp, the Syrian commandos of the 103rd Brigade broke-through Jabhat Al-Nusra’s front-line defenses at the Al-Sileef Valley (Wadi Al-Sileef), where they were able to establish control over the southwestern points bordering this imperative site located south of Kinsibba.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are pushing towards Kinsibba from two different directions: western flank (M-4 Highway) and the southern flank (Jabal Al-Rous).

The Syrian Armed Forces are likely to break into Kinsibba in the coming days, the Islamist rebels continue to retreat east towards the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour in the Idlib Governorate.
