53 troops from coastal region killed in two weeks
(Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 53 regime troops mostly from coastal region have been killed in two weeks by the Islamic State and rebel groups in Syria, according to pro-media outlets.

The death toll included 20 officers killed in Deir Ezzor, Hama and Eastern Ghouta suburbs. 32 of slain soldiers were from Latakia province and 21 from Tartus.

The Alawites-dominated coastal region was, and still, the main manpower supply for Bashar al-Assad's regime. The mourning posters have been sweeping the streets and pro-regime social media of coastal province.

Last November, at least 218 troops from pro-regime areas were killed, according to activists.

More than 119,000 pro-regime forces have been killed, including 62,000 Syrian troops, tens of thousands of loyalist militiamen, and 1,556 fighters from Hezbollah, according to a new estimate by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
