BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – The Syrian military has launched another heavy attack on the jihadist stronghold of Kabani this week, hitting several points under the control of the jihadist rebels.

According to a military source in Latakia city, the Syrian military launched a heavy barrage of missiles and airstrikes on the jihadist positions, inflicting heavy damage on the militant defenses.

The source said the airstrikes primarily targeted the positions of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the foreign jihadists from the Turkestan Islamic Party.

The Turkestan Islamic Party is one of the most powerful jihadist groups in northwestern Syria; they have launched several attacks against the Syrian Arab Army in the past few weeks.
