Violent fighting resumes in Syria's Latakia near Turkish border

On Monday, a source in the militia told RIA Novosti that heavy fighting between terrorists and the Syrian army backed by local militias has resumed in the north of the Latakia province near the Syrian-Turkish border.

“The fighting started this morning near the town of Kinsabba. Now the battle is ongoing near the village of Kamne. Until noon we heard aviation, the [Syrian] army’s and our artillery were working in the air,” the source said.

The Syrian army launched a massive operation on Monday morning. The offensive began in the direction of the city of Kobani in the area of Kasaba, in the North of Latakia province. Fierce fighting continues on the outskirts of the city.

Earlier, the representative of the Higher Committee on negotiations to the Syrian opposition also stated that the truce in Syria came to an end.

A truce agreement was negotiated by Russia and the United States regarding Syrian conflict although many analysts suggested that the Washington had been supporting terrorists fighting against the Syrian government forces.

Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants. From the middle of the March, Russia has been partially withdrawing troops and warplanes from Syria to make an end to the Syrian crisis.
