The Syrian army gained control of the height 489.5 after capturing Height 465.5 in al-Kabir Black Mountain in the Northern countryside of Lattakia.
The recapture of the height came after fierce clashes with the militants that left a large group of the terrorists dead and injured.
Height 489.5 is on the Eastern side of the town of Attira around 1.5 km away from the al-Saraf town, which is a major crossing leading to Jabal (mount) Zahia that is used by the terrorists.
The Syrian forces managed to take full control over point 458.5 in the direction of al-Kabir Black Mountain in the Northern countryside of Lattakia on Wednesday after clashes with the terrorists, informed sources said.
A large group of terrorists were killed and injured in the clashes, the sources added.
The army won control over 1 km of the supply route in the farms between Darayya and al-Moadamyeh, disconnecting the most important arms and logistical supply route used by the militants in the region.
The army also seized militants’ weapons and ammunition in the clashes.
The development came as the Syrian warplanes bombed militants’ fortifications and positions in the farms between Darayya and al-Moadamyeh.
