The recently liberated town has been continuously counter-attacked by Al-Nusra.
The Syrian Arab Army have repelled counter-attack from the Al-Nusra Front after liberating the town of Kinsabba in Northern Latakia, near the Turkish border. The landscape consists of mainly hills and mountains and according to sources is full of landmines set by the terrorists to slow down the advance of the Government troops. The town is also strategically situated on the road linking Latakia with Aleppo which the Syrian army will use in order to liberate Idlib.
A field commander of the army told Sputnik that the terrorists are using suicide bombers to storm the city, however they wouldn’t be able to make any progress due to the reason that the castles in Shalaf and Tubal have been also liberated and held by the SAA. He also added: “When our army was taking Kinsabba, we set up an ambush in the mountains to be able to totally destroy the terrorists.”
