"The Syrian government forces seized a large volume of military hardware, including weapons, vehicles and ammunition in the positions of the militant groups after the terrorists retreated from their strongholds in Jabal al-Sayyid," the sources said.
According to the sources, the recapture of Jabal al-Sayyid currently places the army in a very good position to monitoring the militants' movements in the al-Mreij region.
The seizure of militants' depot in Latakia came a day after the Syrian troops launched an offensive against the militants based in the mountainous regions in northern areas of the coastal province, including those located along border with Turkey.
On Friday, a spokesperson for the Syrian Army announced that the government troops, supported by Russian airstrikes, have managed to gain back more than 56 villages, towns and heights from the militant groups across Latakia in just 68 days.
"The militant groups withdrew forces from over 56 strategic villages, towns and heights after the Syrian government forces launched their joint operation, enjoying the back-up of the Russian air fleet," the spokesperson said.
Sources have, meanwhile, said that dozens of militants were killed and many more wounded after the Russian bombers targeted the militant groups' strongholds in the rural areas in Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen regions in Latakia.
