BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to storm the strategic town of Kabani in northeastern Latakia, a source from the military told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.

Led by the 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces) of the 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army has begun shelling Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions around Kabani as they prepare to storm the town from the southern axis.

In addition to the Syrian Army’s shelling, the Russian Air Force is also participating in the attack on the jihadist stronghold.

According to a source near the front-lines, the 42nd Brigade is looking to capture Kabani and the remaining points under jihadist rebel control along the Idlib-Latakia axis.

If they are successful, the Syrian Arab Army will be able to cutoff the remaining jihadists in Latakia from their main supply route in the Idlib Governorate.

As of now, there has been no movement on the ground; however, this attack will likely commence in the coming hours as it is crucial to the Syrian Army’s battle plan.
