BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force unleashed a flurry of airstrikes over the western region of the Idlib Governorate, today, targeting several areas under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies.
Using their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force reportedly bombarded Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions in the Jaba Al-Zawiya region, which has long been under the control of the jihadist rebels.
The Russian airstrikes over western Idlib, today, were conducted in response to the heavy attacks launched by the jihadist rebels on the government strongholds of Mhardeh and Al-Suqaylabiyeh over the last few days.
No further details have been releaesed at this time.
Wednesday’s air raids marked the first time this month that the Russian Air Force has bombed the Idlib Governorate, let alone, launched any airstrikes inside Syria.
