BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force has begun conducting reconnaissance flights over the Idlib province as the Sochi Agreement falls apart.

According to a new Syrian military report, Russian reconnaissance jets have been flying over the jihadist rebel positions and collecting information about the latter’s whereabouts.

In particular, Russian IL-20 surveillance planes were spotted hovering over the the jihadist positions in the designated deescalation zone in northwestern Syria.

As shown in the video released by STEP News Agency, the Russian IL-20 can be seen flying over the jihadist positions in the northern countryside of the Hama Goernorate:

The resumption of Russian reconnaissance flights in the Idlib and Hama provinces comes just days after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) announced that they would be launching a new military operation in the southeastern part of the deescalation zone.

Good to see the Russians will be involved in the Syrian Government’s Idlib operation. The Turks made the mistake of not reining in their jihadi proxies in that province.

Okay, as requested by ‘Er-dog-an pony-show’, Merkel and Macron, the SAA, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah have allowed the opposition/rebels/jihadists/terrorists/insane-head-choppers to resupply, rearm and reposition within the deescalation zone, it’s time to “LETS GET IT ON” and surgically remove and incinerate this western alliance + saudi arab generated, insane and inhuman cesspool of opposition/rebels/jihadists/terrorists/insane-head-choppers. And don’t hesitate to use those new enhanced radar & targetting system S-300s on any unauthorized aircraft that might enter Syrian airspace, now and later.
