The Syrian army and popular forces started a fresh round of military operation in the Northern part of Lattakia on Sunday to push back the terrorists from the town of Kabani.
The army and popular forces stormed the Zuwayqat region near Kabani and engaged in fierce clashes with Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front).
Scores of terrorists were killed and wounded in the battle with the government forces over Kabani.
In a relevant development on Saturday, military sources said that the Syrian army soldiers alongside the National Defense Forces continued to hit terrorists' strongholds in the mountainous regions of Lattakia and captured several key hills and villages.
"The Syrian government forces' anti-terrorism operation in Northern Lattakia inflicted major losses on the militants and forced them to pull their forces back form the villages of Ein al-Qantara and the hills of Rasha, al-Oweizarat, Zohra, Abu Saeed and Ruweisat al-Kataf," the sources said.
"The terrorist groups retreated from the battlefield after they suffered a heavy death toll and their military hardware sustained major damage," they added.
Meantime on Friday, the Syrian army and the terrorist groups engaged in tough battle in Lattakia province over taking control of strategic regions.
The fierce clashes between the government forces and terrorists came as the Syrian army has started its fresh military operations in Jabal al-Akrad region and the Syrian air force pounded the terrorists' military positions in the same area.
