Beginning on May 25th, the Russian Air Force will once again target the terrorist supply routes coming from Turkey, the Russian Defense Ministry announced on Friday.
The Russian Air Force took a 3 month hiatus from targeting opposition positions in Syria due to the open-ended ceasefire agreement that was put in place all over the country.
However, due to the Syrian opposition’s increased military activity and proliferation of weapons to radical groups, the Russian Air Force will once again have to enforce the ceasefire.
The duration of these Russian airstrikes was not indicated; but, they are likely to continue until the opposition and government delegations agree to meet for another round of peace talks.
The Turkish border-crossing has been a thorn in the Syrian government’s side due to its constant infiltration by jihadist rebels.
These upcoming Russian airstrikes are expected to deter the jihadist rebels from infiltrating the border and entering Syria.
