BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 A.M.) – The Russian military unleashed their wrath over the Idlib Governorate, tonight, targeting several areas controlled by the jihadist rebels in the western part of the province.

According to a Syrian military source in Latakia, the Russian military began their attack by launching several airstrikes over Idlib city, Idlib Central Prison, Al-Mastouma, Ariha, and Sheikh ‘Ali.

Following the airstrikes, the source stated that the Russian Navy fired a number of cruise missiles towards these same areas in Idlib, resulting in several explosions.

The Russian assault was conducted in retaliation for militant attempt to attack the Hmaymim Airport with a drone earlier tonight.

Prior to this large-scale attack, the Russian Aerospace Forces had not launched any airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate in the last 72 hours.

I knew Russians would not hold on bombing Idlib for so long. Sorry for Erdogan but he is the looser…

I suppose you meant “loser”.
In the end, Erdolf can ONLY be the #1 loser.
This creep played all sides and likely believes himself being the mahdi.
When you play all sides, and moreover, are playing mean, you end with all sides playing against you 😉

My mother’s language is not English as you probably have noticed. So, my apologies if I make some mistakes here and there. However, believe me I’m trying my best to write a proper English…

good it would be much easier for syria to let the russians go after idlib and confront any opposition from turks or yanks ,in fact false flags like these should be used to give russia the excuse to just wipe out idlib

Exactly, this is the way to respond to these terrorists. Congratulation to Russia aerospace force and navy. My personal opinion is that Er-dog-an is permitting to his terrorists to do this, and of course, Turkey(CIA) gives enough technology to them.

They should have wiped Tel Aviv off the map.
