Vast Territories in Latakia Cleared of Mines

The Syrian Army engineering units have finished the removal of landmines and explosive devises planted by Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants inside residential buildings and fields in 11 settlements in the northern part of Latakia province, making all efforts for the restoration of peaceful life in the region.
It should be mentioned that the northern Latakia was totally liberated by the government forces from FSA by the end of January 2016. Before retreating the militants planted a great number of landmines and explosive devices all round the province.
The high-ranking Syrian commander stated, all booby-traps, explosive devices and unexploded bombs were destroyed at a special polygon to restore security and peace to the area and provide the conditions for the refugees to return home.
