Syrian Army approaching Idlib Province

The Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance forces are winning back two strategic heights in Lattakia province which will in turn pave their way to capture key areas in neighboring Idlib province, Fars News Agency reports.

The strategic al-Ra’yee and al-Qala heights in Lattakia province overlook Idlib province and capturing them will pave the way for the army’s military advances in Idlib province.

If the Syrian government forces and the resistance fighters take full control of these heights, the al-Younsiyeh, al-Tafahiyeh, Ain al-Hoor and Zeitouniya will fall to the Syrian army’s hands. Also, in this case the Syrian army will be only three kilometers away from the Turkish borders.

Earlier today, the Syrian army and National Defense Forces drove the militant groups back from more villages in the mountainous regions of the coastal province of Lattakia near the border with Turkey.

The pro-government forced, after several hours of tough battle, imposed full control over the villages of Ein al-Beidha, Shir al-Dhaba’a and Ruweisat Rasho.

Scores of the militants were killed or wounded in the army attacks.
