Latakia (8:08 P.M. Damascus Time): The Turkmen Islamic Party launched a new offensive in the Jabal Turkmen and Jabal Al-Akrad areas of rural Latakia, targeting the imperative hilltops of Tal Qal’at and Tal Abu ‘Ali near the town of Kinsibba.

According to local reports, the Turkmen Islamic Party attempted to advance at the aforementioned hilltops, but they were struck by Russian fighter jets just before reaching the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines.

 

However, clashes have now begun at Tal Qal’at, with the Turkmen Islamic Party fighters attempting to advance south from the Turkish border.

Not Turkmen. Turkistan Islamic Party made up of Uyghurs from China. Turkistan here refers to so called “East Turkistan”

#Latakia needs to be cleared once and for all, otherwise it will keep causing problems and SAA keeps unnecessary troops there

And a serious minefield with automatized heavy machineguns, sensors to spot anything and mortar teams with GPS guided mortar shells in order to pound anything trying to cross the border… As long as the turkish border won’t be secured, it will go on…
