The Russian Air Force continued their heavy bombardment of the Idlib Governorate, today, after taking a short hiatus overnight to concentrate on the Hama province. 

Russian Sukhoi jets reportedly unleashed several airstrikes along the Turkish border this afternoon, hitting a number of jihadist targets inside the strategic district of Jisr Al-Shughour. 

According to a military source in western Syria, the Russian Air Force primarily targeted areas that had a large presence of jihadist rebels from the terrorist group known as the Turkestan Islamic Party. 

Due to the large presence of jihadists in this district, the Russian Air Force has concentrated their efforts on disrupting Turkestan Islamic Party’s main supply route in military bases.

With the Syrian Arab army preparing offensive northwestern Syria the Russian Air Force has intensified their aerial campaign against the jihadist rebels.
