The trenches were reportedly located near the Idlib Governorate towns of Sukeek and Al-Taman’ah, which are future targets for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies .
In addition to the strikes by the Russians, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) also carried out their own attack on the Hama-Idlib axis.

In the coming days, the Syrian Arab Army is expected to kickoff their long-awaited offensive to retake northern Hama and several towns in southern Idlib.
