Army units continue to valiantly confront terrorist groups’ repeated attempts to infiltrate Point 45 in the northern countryside of Latakia province, inflicting heavy losses upon them, a military source said, noting clashes there are still underway.
The army units had earlier foiled an attempt to attack Point 45 and forced the terrorists to retreat towards the northeastern side, chasing down the fleeing members with heavy fire.
The source added that the army units also directed severe blows to the armed terrorist groups in al-Nesser Mountain in the north, destroying their firing bases and killing large numbers of them.
All members of an armed terrorist group were also left dead and wounded as they were ambushed by army units while they were trying to infiltrate the northern part of Aziza village on the axis of al-Sheikh S’eed and the iron factory in Aleppo, according to another military source.
The source told SANA that other terrorists, including Saudis, received heavy losses as they attempted to infiltrate the Haddadin-Saqalya intersection.
The Saudi Saifullah Abdullah was identified among the dead, in addition to terrorists Abdul-Karim Behelleh and Malek Ahmad Hazani.
