Army units, in cooperation with the popular defense groups, established control over the strategic al-Sayyed Mountain in the northern countryside of Lattakia province, a military source announced on Thursday.




Terrorists positioned in the area were fired at intensively, with many of them getting killed and the rest escaped, the source told SANA.


During combing operations in the mountain, the army units dismantled many explosive devices and mines planted by terrorists and found at its foot a 50 m tunnel equipped with lighting that contained vehicles and equipment used by the terrorists to dig trenches and tunnels to hinder the army’s advance in the region, according to the source.


The new achievement came one day after the army established control over the strategic al-Noubeh Mountain in Lattakia northern countryside.
