BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) -The Russian Air Force carried out a new attack on the jihadist-held town of Rakaya in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Friday.

Footage of the attack, which was captured by a film crew belonging to one of the pro-opposition channels in Idlib, showed the moment the Russian Air Force bombed Rakaya this morning.

The town of Rakaya is currently under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, which is the largest jihadist group in northern Syria.

Earlier in the week, a source from the Syrian Army told the Sputnik News Agency’s Arabic-language channel that the Russian Air Force destroyed Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s command center in Rakaya.

However, a source from the army said they believe the jihadist group has since moved their command center to a new location inside the town.
