Syrian Army Liberating Several Villages, Deploying Close to Latakia border with Idlib (Maps, Video)

On September 9, units belogning to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Desert Hawks Brigade, the Syrian Marines and and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) launched a wide-scale offensive in the northern part of Syria’s province of Latakia. The loyalists’ offensive advanced on Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Jabhat Al Nusra) terrorists at the Saraf – Kiliz axis in Jabal Turkmen and at the Kinsiba – Kabaneh axis in Jabal Akrad.

By now, the SAA and its allies have reportedly captured next sites: Tell Rasha, Nahshaba, Dahret Abo Saad, Rweiset al-Katf, Ayn Qantarah, Ard al-Wata, Maz’alah, Ayn Baydah, Jabal Hassan and Ayn al-Hawr. Separately, the pro-government forces have secured the Points 540 and 650 near the village of Al-Ra’i in Jabal Akrad.

    I’m assuming that the border is closed and the insurgency is becoming an old policy, probably that’s because KSA has a vested interest in Balkanizing the ME. Erdogan knows that, and doesn’t want to be another Saddam Hussein, KSA provoked Saddam by slant- drilling using their clients in Kuwait to insight war and eliminate Saddam.
