BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has unleashed a massive assault across the Idlib Governorate this afternoon, targeting several areas under the control of the jihadist rebels near the provincial capital.
Led by the Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force heavily bombarded several bases and storage facilities belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham near Idlib city.
In particular, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar that the Russian Air Force targeted a Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham base near the Idlib Central Prison.
The source said the Russian Air Force managed to hit their targets in the Idlib Governorate, causing several explosions in the process.
He would add that the Russian Air Force is likely to keep bombarding the jihadist sites as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) prepares to launch their long-awaited offensive in northern Hama and southern Idlib.
