BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – New video footage was released on Friday that showed the Russian Air Force in action against the Turkish-backed militants in eastern Idlib yesterday.
In the video, the Russian Air Force can be seen zeroing in on the Turkish-backed militants and then destroying their vehicles and killing their personnel on the ground near the town of Nayrab.

According to observers, the Russian airstrikes destroyed most of the militant equipment, including four Turkish military M-60 Sabra MBTs.
