A rocket attack by Takfiri militants on the major port city of Latakia in western Syria leaves six civilians dead and more than 19 others injured.

Media sources reported on Monday that foreign-backed militants targeted various residential areas in the city, with several rockets landing in the vicinity of a bus station.

The sources added that the death toll is likely to rise because of the critical condition of some of the victims.

Elsewhere, in Latakia's northern countryside, Syrian air force fighters inflicted heavy losses on militants affiliated with the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front and other Takfiri groups.

Also, the positions of the terrorist group calling itself Ahrar al-Sham in the northwestern town of Kansaba were targeted by air force fighter jets.

Elsewhere, an army unit killed several terrorists and destroyed their vehicles and military equipment after attacking their hideouts in Nawwara Mountain in Rabi’a area in the Latakia countryside.

Another army unit destroyed a rocket launcher in Burj al-Qasab village while the air force attacked the supply routes of the terrorist forces in the Nasib town to the southeast of Daraa City.

The air strikes resulted in the destruction of terrorist weapons and ammunition, and the death of many militants, including their commanders.

The foreign-backed militancy in Syria, which began in March 2011, has so far claimed an estimated 240,000 lives, including nearly 12,000 children.

The violence has also forced over 3.8 million Syrians to take refuge in neighboring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon. Over 7.2 million more civilians have also been displaced within Syria, according to the United Nations.
