Syrian army launched an offensive in the north of Latakia

27
On the night of July 8, the Syrian government army launched a massive offensive in the north of Latakia province. The main purpose of the operation is to take control of the strategically important settlement of Kinsibba and its surrounding heights. At the first stage of the operation, the Syrian marines, supported by the fighters of the Desert Hawks, began storming the heights of Shalaf and Tubal fortress, located south of Kinsibba. This writes the information portal AMN.


Syrian army launched an offensive in the north of Latakia


Military sources report that if the UAR government forces manage to liberate the city of Kinsibba from the militants, they will try to regain control over several parts of the border with Turkey as a success.

The reports noted that the jihadists in the north of the provinces of Latakia and Aleppo do not have enough forces to fully contain the offensive of the Syrian government forces. Thus, the militants of the Jaish al-Fatah group have left their positions in the south of Aleppo and are trying to move to the north of Syria to join the ranks of those groups that are in this direction opposing the SAR army. Sources have reported that jihadists have problems with the replenishment of human resources, and during the transfer they are subjected to attacks from the air by the SAR Air Force, which leads to significant losses in both manpower and military equipment.

Syrian media write that the country has launched a charity event to support wounded soldiers. President Bashar Asad also took part in the action.



He visited wounded in the battles with terrorists of the fighters of the ATS army in the clinic of the province of Homs, thanked for military work and presented awards.

    And not only in Latakia offensive. Aleppo finally made a cauldron. And east of Damascus, the cauldron conceals.

        And a couple more news .. hi
        The special forces of the Syrian Arab Army "Tigers" were able to recapture the southern agricultural areas of Al-Mallah north of Aleppo, coming close to the route of Castillo, the main supply route of the rebels in this city.

        Violent clashes, accompanied by rocket and artillery shelling and air strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces, broke out this morning with the onset of pro-government forces, as a result of which they managed to get closer to the Castillo highway to one kilometer. A military source confirmed to Al-Masdar News that the supply lines of the militants of the armed opposition are now being shot through by Syrian troops to the full depth.

        The Castillo route was the last and only supply route for Islamist groups in Aleppo, including Jabhat Al-Nusra (the al Qaeda branch of Syria), through which they received weapons, ammunition and reinforcements.

        The Syrian Army and Hezbollah fought off all the positions they had left near the border with Lebanon from the jihadists

        Hezbollah troops, in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) units and the National Defense Forces (SNO), counterattacked the position of the Islamist militants at the two outposts they had previously captured in the vicinity of Rancus in the Kalamoun mountains. A military source told Al-Masdar News that pro-government forces were able to recapture Al-Safa hill and nearby roadblocks after a quick battle with the Jabhat Al-Nusra jihadists (Syrian branch of Al-Qaida) and the Free Syrian Army (SSA) . Having repulsed all the positions left in the morning in that area, the Syrian troops and Hezbollah actually thwarted the plans of the jihadists to seize the border crossing across the Syrian-Lebanese border.

          Just a few hours after the liberation of the southern areas of the agricultural land of Al-Mallah, a video was taken, taken from the drone and showing the territories occupied by government troops, as well as passing along the nearby Castillo highway.

      There are already dozens of these boilers for years. But Latakia needs to be squeezed. It’s their own fault that in spring they didn’t go to the border. We would have gone to the border — they mined it well, put up the border guards and it would have been quiet there — on this stretch of the border to the ledge. Turks from their territory would not have let the Baha'is keep the BD. In Syria - for God's sake, but from the territory of Turkey would not have been given. However, they did not work out, the experimental units were transferred to other fronts - this is the result. HOPE AT LEAST NOW THIS PIECE WILL BE COMPLETED. hi

      To close the border, Idlib province needs to be blocked, militants and weapons go there in columns and then dissolve along the fronts. Good luck to the Syrians in freeing their land from these obscurantists.

      And the fact that among these "bandits in jeeps with machine guns" are military instructors from Turkey plus fresh ATGMs from the USA and Saudi Arabia, do you not consider? Apparently, you do not take into account the artillery shelling of the positions of the Syrian army in the same Latakia from Turkish territory. And, perhaps, you forget about the presence of American special forces in Syria, which, in a strange way, has not yet been noticed in countering ISIS ... Here is such and such a "circus" ...

        You want to say that if bandits are given lecturers, instructors, supported by Turkish art, then this will be enough so that they can resist the army? .. Well, well ... I have slightly different ideas about the war hi

          Well, if we take into account the fact that a lot of former Iraqi army officers went to the bandits, then the idea of ​​a war can change.

    Urban fights are heavy fights. Of course, radical measures can be taken: throw a small single bomb and the problem is solved. And who will take responsibility for such an action? you?

    Come on to you) I understand that you have a split personality laughing Given that, you, the word plural I apologize laughing
    I also want to note that when you will be there in Syria, then it’s so easy to reason. And while you’re not there, it’s not for you to judge what is there and what is there.

    Threat.
    "In 1991, after the collapse of the USSR, the Mediterranean squadron ceased to exist, but the logistics center of the Navy remained in Syria. In 1991-2007, one-off cruises of the Russian Navy ships to the Mediterranean Sea were carried out, the ships used the point in Tartus to replenish fuel supplies. and food [5].
    Currently, the naval logistics center consists of two floating berths, a floating workshop - PM-61M (one since 1999 [6]), an administrative building, a barracks, two small storage facilities and various utility facilities on land. Only one of the two berths is operational. The PMTO of the Navy in Tartus is served by a staff of four Russian naval sailors. "(C) wiki

    Now in the desert they are advancing near Alepo, now Latakia, in my opinion it’s the best to sit up straight and prepare troops for half a year, since it is obvious that Syria does not have a normal army.
