BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – The Russian and Syrian air forces have resumed their aerial attacks on the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate this evening, a source from the military told Al-Masdar from nearby Hama.

According to the military source, the Russian and Syrian air forces unleashed a powerful assault on the positions of the jihadist rebels along the Hama-Idlib axis.

The source said the primary target was the jihadist supply route from the strategic town of Khan Sheikhoun.

Earlier tonight, the jihadist rebels launched a big offensive in northwestern Hama that targeted the main road between the government strongholds of Al-Sqaylabiyeh and Mhardeh.

The aforementioned strongholds are populated by Antiochian Orthodox Christians that have repeatedly repelled jihadist attacks in the past.

  1. These attack must not be done in “response to,” but must be the result of a coordinated attack and offensive in this area. Offensive without any ceasefire until getting rid of terrorists and Turkish at Idlib.
