The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) artillery shelled on November 22 positions and fortifications of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies in northern Lattakia.
Iba’a, the news network of HTS, released a video showing the SAA’s intense shelling, which was focused on the vicinity of the key town of Kabani.
Attack helicopters of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) also carried out a series of airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in the region.
Kabani and its surroundings are controlled by HTS and its allies, the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL), the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) and Ajnad al-Kavkaz (AK).
In the last few weeks, the SAA made several attempts to advance around Kabani. However, the terrorists managed to hold onto their positions thanks to a series of fortifications they built during the recent ceasefire agreements.
