The Russian Air Force carried out a series of airstrikes over the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) controlled city of Jisr Al-Shughour last night, destroying a large weapons depot and a row of armored vehicles that were parked in the northern district.

According to a military source from the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian fighter jets pounded the coalition of Al-Qaeda factions in Idlib dubbed “Jaysh Al-Fateh” with a powerful series of airstrikes that rocked the foundation of this terrorist group’s stronghold inside this province in Syria’s northern countryside.

The source stated that the total number of airstrikes launched by the Russian Air Force was 7, while also adding that all of their attacks were conducted between 2 A.M. and 5 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Monday morning.

The Russian Air Force have launched night raids inside the city of Jisr Al-Shughour for the second straight night; however, the airstrikes conducted last night were far more intense than the night before, as the tumultuous sound of explosions could be heard as far south as the Syrian Arab Army controlled city of Joureen in the Hama Governorate.

Jisr Al-Shughour was captured by the Al-Qaeda affiliates during their large-scale offensive inside the Idlib Governorate in May of 2015; this city is critical to the Syrian Armed Forces due to its proximity to the Latakia Governorate.
