The jihadist rebels in rural Aleppo have had little sleep over the last 72 hours, thanks in large part to the Russian Air Force’s powerful aerial campaign that has specifically targeted their positions around this province in northern Syria.
On Tuesday night, the Russian Air Force carried out a significant number of airstrikes over the Aleppo Governorate, hitting several targets that belonged to the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
In particular, the Russian Air Force specifically targeted the villages of ‘Anadan, Haritan, Hayyan, Bayyanoun, Khan Touman, Tal Al-‘Eiss, and Qa’liyjah; these are all located outside of Aleppo City.
Earlier reports indicated that the Syrian Armed Forces had taken control of the Aleppo Infantry Academy in the northern countryside of the province; however, this has been denied by local sources.

Your twitter page doesn’t exist… Hey, these shithadists wear civilian clothes 😉 Just need to not wear their tactical gear in front of cameras and whine about bombings… #stopthewar?
