BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force has unleashed a new round of airstrikes tonight, targeting several areas in the southwestern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.
Led by their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force hammered the Al-Ghaab Plain this evening, hitting a number of jihadist sites inside the towns of Amqiyah and Amqaka.
According to a military source in nearby Hama, the Russian Air Force was targeting sites belonging to the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
The attack on southwestern Idlib tonight comes just 24 hours after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham attempted to bomb the Russian Hmeimim Airbase in southwestern Latakia.
The jihadist drone strikes were ultimately repelled by the Russian Air Force before the bombs could reach the Hmeimim Airbase.
