The northwestern Syrian town of Kinsabba in the Latakia Governorate has been successfully recovered from Islamist militants by the Syrian army, the Lebanese Al Mayadeen TV channel reported on Thursday.


The town which is close to the Turkish border, some 320 km (around 200 miles) to the north from Damascus, has a strategical importance, and reportedly is a key supply route for extremists. It was the last stronghold of the militants in Latakia, with anti-government fighters fleeing to the neighboring province of Idlib.


Idlib is still largely controlled by jihadi terrorists, but reclaiming Kinsabba will allow government troops to expand their advance there, local media reported.
