BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian and Russian air forces are going all in this week, as they hammer the Idlib and Hama governorates in order to pave the way for the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) new advances.

According to a military report from this area, the Syrian and Russian air forces have conducted over 200 airstrikes above the Idlib Governorate in the last 48 hours, breaking their previous records by a large number.

While the airstrikes have been concentrated on the southern and eastern parts of Idlib, the Russian and Syrian air forces have also targeted the main highway that is used by the militants in the central part of the province.

As a result of these airstrikes, the Syrian Army has been able to capture more than 10 towns from the jihadist rebels, leaving them within 20km of the key city of Saraqib near the Aleppo axis.

Eventually, Russia has to decide to help Syria against Turkey, or to allow Turkey to continue invading and destroying Syria,….. it is not possible to walk any more with doble standard behavior.
