Syrian Army Takes Control of Nuba Mountains in Latakia


Damascus: The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) imposed full control over the strategic Al-Nuba Mountains (Jabal Al-Nuba) after a week long battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), reported by Press Tv.

The Syrian Armed Forces captured all of the points along the Al-Nuba Mountains when Jabhat Al-Nusra’s front lines became fractured, this forced the aforementioned Islamist group to retreat north in order to evade the swarming pro-government soldiers.
