Newscast Media DAMASCUSThe Syrian army regained control over all the areas that had been recently seized by the militant groups in Latakia countryside. In the framework of pursuing the armed terrorist groups in Lattakia countryside, units of the armed forces completely controlled al-Nabi Ashi'a Mount and the adjacent areas, an official source told SANA news agency on Monday.

"The army retook control of the Nabi Ashia mountain range and adjoining areas in the north of Latakia province," the source said, of villages seized in early August by rebels trying to topple Assad.

On Sunday state television reported that the army had reclaimed rebel-held villages in the coastal province, hinterland of Assad’s minority Alawite community.

A Syrian security force, however, told AFP the army still had to recapture the Salma region, a strategic area along the border with Turkey that has been in rebel hands since the end of last year.       Add Comments>>
