On Sunday, the SAA pushed militants out of Rweiset Addou, Ketf al-Harami and Yaqouber, the Fars news agency detailed. The three hilltops are located between the regions of Salma and Kabani.
A day earlier, Damascus-led forces scored a number of victories in what the news agency described as "fierce battles" with militants. The large-scale offensive ended with the SAA taking eight strategic heights and a village in the Latakia province under control.
Militants, according to Fars news, fled from Heights 652, 687.5, 526, 662.8, 427, 754.5, Syriatel Tower, Jabal al-Aswad al-Kabir and Atira village. More than 25 terrorists were killed in the operation. The SAA also destroyed military hardware.
