BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:35 P.M.) – Russian warplanes have attacked high-value targets belonging to Al-Qaeda affiliate militia Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (better known by its former name Jabhat al-Nusra) in the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib with a series of precision airstrikes.

The strikes by Russian airpower have been conducted in response to the ongoing shelling of the besieged Shiite villages of Fouaa and Kafriyah – located just to the north of Idlib city – by Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham.

According to sources, Russian warplanes conducted at least five airstrikes against Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham bases, gatherings and headquarters inside Idlib city using laser guided munitions (some of the bunker buster variety).

Dozens of jihadist militants, some of them commanders, have been killed as a result of the bombardment.

A militant activist in Idlib city has captured footage showing the moment a 2,000 pound Russian guided bomb struck a headquarters center belonging to Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham.

How did this militant know that building is going to be hit?

He heard the jet, picked up his camera, and pointed it outside.

No casual viewer could possibly have that much luck.
The tone of his “Allah u akbar” was not that of a militant watching his comrades turned into flying meat. Evident rejoicing there. And, he targeted his camera in the exact place, no shaking, no panning. Plus, there’re walkie-talkie sounds in the background.

I think we’ve been shown an SSA spy giving Russians the coordinates for the target. Incredible document.
