BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels in the Jisr Al-Shughour countryside have once again blocked the strategic M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway) by destroying the road used for the joint Turkish-Russian patrols.
According to reports, the jihadist rebels destroyed the bridge inside the town of Al-Kfeir, thus blocking the Russian forces from accessing the highway around the Jisr Al-Shughour District.

This is the second bridge that has been destroyed by the jihadist rebels in the Idlib Governorate since the Moscow Agreement was put in place on March 5th.
The Russian military has been unable to complete their agreed upon patrols along the M-4 Highway due to the destruction of the roadway and security threats by the jihadist rebels.
According to the Russian Reconciliation Center, Turkey has vowed to expel these extremist groups from the highway, but they have failed to do so thus far.
