The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed on November 29 its ground operations in the northern Lattakia countryside and advanced towards the key town of Kabani.

According to pro-government activists, the army secured the 101 hilltop, which overlooks the key town, following heavy clashes with terrorist groups.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP), suffered from heavy losses while repelling the SAA’s attacks.

Despite losing a hill, HTS claimed that its militants damaged a battle tank and ambushed a group of Syrian soldiers. A source in the SAA’s 4th Division, which is leading the attack, confirmed that a tank was damaged. However, he denied the claims of an ambush.

The SAA launched several attacks in northern Lattakia earlier this month. All the attacks ended up failing, due to the area’s rough terrain which is playing in favor of HTS and its allies. Terrorist groups built a complex network of tunnels and caves in the area over the last year.
