BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Footage has been released by the Russian Ministry of Defence showing the latest results of ongoing Russian airstrikes against militant forces throughout northwestern Syria.
The footage (below), captured by Russian drones and from the targeting pods on Russian combat aircraft, shows the destruction of militant command bases, tanks and entire truck convoys by precision strikes.
Virtually all of the militant targets engaged in the footage belong to the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate) terrorist group. The general location of all the strikes is southern Idlib Governorate.
Following a sudden but nonetheless forlorn offensive by Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham and supporting militias one week ago, the Russian Aerospace Forces have been conducting round-the-clock airstrikes throughout rebel-held northwestern Syria, suppressing – with all means available – jihadist movements wherever they have been located.
