Military operations begun by the Syrian army and allied forces two weeks ago were successful as terrorists were forced to flee occupied positions after the continuous attack from government forces.
The infantry advanced from Kinsabba and Al Hamrat towards the two directions, one of the commanders told Sputnik. They attacked militants near the eastern border of Latakia province.
"In a short time, our forces managed to seize control of the positions in the east of Latakia, forcing the militants to retreat in Idlib. In addition, we have established control over the two heights on Mount Turkmen," the commander said.
Moreover, the main forces of the Syrian Armed Forces will advance from Kinsabba to liberate Idlib in the near future.
