I gruppi terroristici hanno intensificato gli attacchi nel nord della provincia di Latakia, in Siria occidentale, al confine con la Turchia. Lo ha detto durante una conferenza stampa il ministro degli Esteri siriano, Walid Muallem, il quale ha aggiunto che l’attuale situazione ad Al Tabqa, a Raqqa e nelle zone circostanti è di aggressione contro la Siria.

The terrorist groups stepped up attacks in the north of Latakia province, located in western Syria, on the border with Turkey, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said Thursday at a press conference. “They [terrorists] have launched attacks in northern Latakia, and they are receiving instructions from their patrons,” Muallem said. He added that the current situation in Al Tabqa, Raqqa and surrounding areas was an aggression against Syria. “The West, the Arabs and the Turks have subordinates who execute their instructions,” Muallem added. Syria’s civil war between government forces and a wide range of opposition groups and terrorists, such as Islamic State (IS) and Jabhat Fatah al Sham (formerly known as the Nusra Front), both banned in many countries including Russia, has raged for over six years and has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. In November 2016, Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched an Operation Euphrates Rage to retake Raqqa from the IS. On Wednesday, local media reported that SDF killed 13 IS jihadists in clashes near the IS-controlled town of Al Tabqa as part of the SDF offensive aimed at liberation of Raqqa.
