According to the correspondent LifeNews, Syrian government forces are attacking the city of Kessab. If this locality is recaptured by the troops of the SAR, then the entire province of Latakia will come under the control of the government army, and at the same time - a long stretch of the border with Turkey.
Arthur Kebekov makes an important addition. According to him, the Turkish army is firing on territories that are already occupied by the Syrian military, frankly interfering with the anti-terrorist operation. Turkish artillery strikes the outskirts of the city of Ar-Rabia, liberated by the SAR troops, which allows the terrorists to retreat under cover.
Meanwhile, the news agency SANA reports that militants who suffer a clear defeat open fire from various types weapons in residential areas of abandoned cities, trying to provoke discontent of the local population with the attack of government troops.
