Syrian Army Kicks Off Ground Operation In Northern Lattakia

Illustrative image

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies launched a ground operation against the remaining terrorists in the northern Lattakia countryside in the noon of May 8.

According to the Military Media, the army and its allies have captured several key positions between the highest point in the al-Zuiyqat mount and point 1154 near the strategic Kurd mount.

Multiple terrorist groups, including the al-Qaeda-affiliated Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP), Ajnad al-Kavkaz (AK) and Horas al-Din, are stationed in the opposition-held part of the northern Lattakia countryside. From there, these groups launch rockets at the Russian Hmeimim airbase on the Syrian coast.

Earlier, Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the town of Kabani in northern Lattakia following a new rocket attack on the Hmeimim airbase.

The new operation will further complicate the situation for the terrorist groups in Idlib and its surroundings, which are failing to hold onto their positions in northern Hama and suffering from heavy loses.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      yep they are kind of ungrateful the goat f*ckers, considering they owe to the russians and their green bus policy their lives in the first place. I hope the russians getting a lesson out of this and learning, that when you become one with the whores, you allegedly went to fight against, then you also get fu*ket same way as they are.

    It’s a limited operation, by sure , on the second day, ground operations in Hama and Latakia, only Aleppo and Idlib are missing, on ground attacks, to be a general ‘limited’ offensive.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      it takes time to establish in idlip the isis state same as it takes time to establish the kurds as a state. But seems all they seem to be playing along like good team players, give it some time and all will be cleared for all to see.

      • jorge

        Lets see, first of all. if is a ‘limited’ offensive or not. My bet: they are going to clear Idlib and Afrin.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          ok I take your bet. If you are right I make you the best BBQ party usually my parties of this kind, last a week and you can be guest on my mountain.

          I know I am right in what I am analyzing and where all this will end up so just your admission, of reality will be enough for me.

  • Leon

    Northern Lattakia, Northern Hama …… but not yet Idlib ! Not allowed by Erdogan !

    • jorge

      From nothern Hama they have entered southeast Idlib already.

    • Justin

      You cant take idlib with troops yet! Bombing it does gain any ground! Just gives these head choppers and excuse to televise civilians and white helmets! Why would Russia want to do that?

      They are doing the right thing if you dont mind me saying so General Keyboard Warrior!

      • Brother Ma

        How are they doing the right thing? One day they will have to get rid of them by bombing and sending in troops.

        Why are they not starving them out? Scared of bad publicity? So what! You can’t keep america happy,does not matter how “nice “Russia is. So just starve or slaughter and do it now!

        • Justin

          Russia needs to look like the good guy as much as possible! Every bad thing Russia does will be used to prove all the fake things Russia did!
          A real Russian massacre will make the fake CW attacks seem real!
          Russia and Syria have already won this war! There is no rush! HTS doesnt have an airforce! An airforce + Artillery + tiger forces + tanks + Iran + drones + smart missiles + Advanced Electronic warfare + spies + Special forces + new advanced weapons for testing + Espionage + cause infighting amongst different factions + Arms sales etc etc!
          This is the time you should enjoy a slow and methodical advance!
          SAA and Russia cant loose!
          So close to the Russian and Syrian airbases!
          So much Artillery!
          So much captured weapons!
          You should be enjoying this! Almost every day u will read good news about new grounds and cities being taken!
          I would not complain! Enjoy it dude! The war is already won!
