TEHRAN (FNA) The Syrian Army and its popular allies are making a rapid march on terrorists’ positions at Lattakia province’s border with Turkey, battlefield source said, adding that even the Turkish Army’s artillery shelling of Syrian government forces has failed to slow them down.

“The Turkish army’ artillery units opened fire at the Syrian government forces this morning to prevent their rapid advance against the militant groups in the Northern part of the coastal province of Lattakia near the border with Turkey,” the sources said.

 

 

“The Syrian army, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Iraqi pro-Syrian popular forces operating in the mountainous regions of Lattakia province are only a few hundred meters away from the Turkish border now,” the sources added.

“The Syrian government forces, after imposing full control over Nawareh village in the Northeastern side of Otayreh and purging terrorists from the strategic al-Barakah and al-Khadhra mountains, are very close to Lattakia’s border with Turkey,” they went on to say.

“Scores of Jeish al-Fatah’s militants have been killed or wounded in the attacks,” the sources said.

“The Turkish artillery shelled the government forces’ positions and movements to prevent their speeding victories against the militant group, but the Syrian forces continued their anti-terrorism operation in spite of the shelling,” the sources added.

“In the meantime, the Syrian army and its Iraqi popular allies carried out mop-up operation across the newly-liberated villages of al-Qanimeh, A’Eid and al-Qastal in the province,” the sources further added.

Reports said earlier today that the Syrian army and the NDF continued to push back militants in the Northern mountains of the coastal province of Lattakia near the border with Turkey following hours of breathtaking battle.

The Syrian soldiers and the NDF have pushed back the militant groups from their positions in Tal al-Bashoureh and the surroundings of town of al-Aliyeh.

The militant groups left behind scores of the dead and wounded members and fled the battlefields to evade more casualties.
