On Saturday morning, the Russian Air Force concentrated their efforts on the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) controlled cities of Mardeij, Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, Jisr Al-Shughour, and Sarmeen, striking these sites inside the Idlib Governorate over 20 times before they delivered one last blow to the Islamist rebels at the city of Saraqib.

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the Russian Air Force primarily targeted Saraqib and Jisr Al-Shughour during their bombing campaign on Saturday, hitting the Al-Qaeda affiliates a total of 16 times in the aforementioned cities before they returned to the Hmamiyat Airfields inside Bassel Al-Assad International Airport in the Jableh District (Latakia).

The source added that the Russian Air Force’s objective at Saraqib was to destroy a command-and-control center belonging to the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”; this assault was captured on film by the Russian news outlet “Russia Today” and spread all over social media.

In addition to their airstrikes above Saraqib and Jisr Al-Shughour, the Russian Air Force struck the Al-Qaeda affiliates from Jaysh Al-Fateh at the cities of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, Mardeij, and Sarmeen; this was followed by a reconnaissance flight above the Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate.

Social media activists from the Jaysh Al-Fateh affiliates reported a number casualties from the Russian Air Force attack that destroyed their command-and-control center inside the city of Saraqib.
