"There is a threat of armed groups organizing large-scale attacks in northern Latakia and northern Hama. But the Syrian army is taking measures and is ready to repel possible attacks," the official said.
According to Sadun, the militants of the Jabhat al-Nusra* terror group have taken hold of the strategic section of the Latakia-Ariha highway and fire at positions of the Syrian army in the north of Hama and Latakia along the demilitarized zone.
The province of Idlib in northwest Syria is the last remaining stronghold of terrorist groups operating in the country, including Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization, which has joined forces with four other jihadi groups in Idlib to form a terrorist alliance called Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, widely regarded as the dominant force on the ground in the province.
Jabhat al-Nusra is a terrorist group banned in Russia
