The Syrian government troops embarked on a tactical withdrawal from a hilltop in the Northern part of Lattakia province after massive attacks by hundreds of Jeish al - Fatah terrorists backed by the Turkish army ' s massive artillery fire. The Syrian army pulled out its troops from Al-Nawara height in Northern Lattakia after they came under massive Turkish army artillery fire followed by a large-scale attack by hundreds of the Jeish al-Fatah terrorists who moved from the direction of Al-Nawara village. The government troops had seized the Al-Nawara heights alongside several other regions in Northern Lattakia 10 days ago. Army sources said their units have called for more units and air backup to take back the Al-Nawara Height. In a relevant development earlier on Monday, the Russian Air Force launched a large-scale aerial campaign over Jabal al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountain) and Jabal al-Akrad (Kurds Mountain) in the Northern part of Lattakia, targeting al-Nusra Front's positions along the Turkish border. The Russian Air Force carried out over 20 airstrikes in Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen, hitting several militant camps and border-villages used by al-Nusra Front to house and resupply their fighters combating the Syrian government forces. Despite the proximity of the Turkish border from their targets in Northern Lattakia, the Russian Air Force did not violate Turkish airspace nor did they hit any refugee camps as opposition activists usually claim. Also on Monday, the Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement continued their advances in Lattakia, and are now in full control over 85 percent of the coastal province. The terrorist groups have sustained heavy losses in Lattakia province over the past 6 months and the militants are only in control of 15 percent of the province. The Syrian army and resistance forces are now trying to consolidate their military positions in strategic Nawareh, Saraf, al-Dorreh, al-Sarmanieh, al-Zeytounia and al-Younesiya regions.
