BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The militants were planning to use chemical weapons again in Aleppo, the Russian Ministry of Defense said on Sunday.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, their fighter jets destroyed the militant launching sites in order to foil any future attacks by the latter in Aleppo.
Earlier today, the Russian Air Force unleashed a number of airstrikes over the jihadist rebel positions in the southern and western regions of Aleppo.
The Russian Air Force reportedly targeted the jihadist launching sites in the Rashideen 4 (west Aleppo) suburb and the town of Khan Touman (south Aleppo).
Today’s airstrikes by the Russian Air Force marked the first time that they launched aerial assault against the rebels since the September 17th Sochi meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
