A well-known Syrian military expert stated that the recent airstrikes launched by the Russian Air Force against the jihadist rebels in the Idlib Governorate are a prelude to the upcoming Syrian Arab Army (SAA) offensive along the Hama-Idlib axis.

Syrian military expert, Ali Maqsoud, told the Arabic-language version of the Sputnik News Agency on Thursday that a jihadist chemical weapons factory had been destroyed, thus foiling Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s plot to carry out an attack before he next round of the Astana Peace Talks in the Kazakh capital.

He said that the leader of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and founder of Jabhat Al-Nusra, Abu Mohammad Al-Joulani, has threatened the rebel groups against reaching a compromise with the Syrian government.

Maqsoud told Sputnik that the Syrian and Russian intelligence forces have uncovered a number of imperative command centers belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies inside the Idlib Governorate.

Most recently, the Russian Air Force bombed three weapons factories, along with a Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham command center, during their recent attack on the Idlib Governorate.

In a recent development, the Arabic-language news channel, Al-Mayadeen TV, reported that a blast took place in a Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham regional command center.

All of these attacks, Maqsoud argued, are a prelude to an upcoming Syrian Army offensive against the jihadist group.
