BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out strategic strikes Saturday that targeted two bases belonging to the Al-Qaeda-linked Hurras Al-Deen group in the Idlib Governorate of northern Syria.

According to a military report, the Russian Air Force carried out two attacks on the Hurras Al-Deen bases in the towns of Tal Agher and Ballisa, which are both located in the eastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

The pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the Russian strikes resulted in the death of at least nine militants, including a half dozen terrorists from the Hurras Al-Deen group.

The Hurras Al-Deen group is a powerful jihadist group that is currently active inside the Idlib Governorate; they were previously attacked by the U.S. Air Force in a rare attack.

The Russian Air Force has mostly halted their airstrikes over Syria since the Syrian Arab Army’s successful operation in northern Hama and southern Idlib.

El problema es cuando detienes la ofensiva y otorgas tiempo, los terroristas simplemente se fortalecen, la ofensiva aérea debe continuar sin descanso, sólo así se podrá acabar con el terrorismo con prontitud y luego pensar en Turquía e Israel, ambos enemigos de Siria…
