BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The Syrian military resumed their attacks on the jihadist stronghold of Kabani, Monday, hitting the town with both airstrikes and surface-to-surface missiles.
According to a source in the Latakia Governorate, the Syrian Air Force began the day by launching several airstrikes over Kabani.
These airstrikes were followed by a barrage of surface-to-surface missiles that were fired by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in the Zuwayqat Mountain area of northeast Latakia.
While the Syrian Army has refrained from storming Kabani, a source from the Republican Guard stated that military may resume this ground push in the coming weeks if the upcoming talks between Turkey, Iran, and Russia fail.
The Syrian Army’s previous offensive at Kabbani failed after more than a month of clashes with the jihadists of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.
