The Russian Air Force has been lurking around the Aleppo countryside tonight, searching for Jihadist fighters from Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, and Jabhat Al-Shamiya.

Thus far, the Russian Air Force has conducted a large number of airstrikes in western Aleppo tonight, hitting Jihadist targets at the villages of Al-Mansoura, Al-Rashiddeen, and Khan Al-‘Assal.

In addition to their airstrikes in west Aleppo, the Russian Air Force is also targeting several supply roads in the southern part of the province, while the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah carry out night raids in the countryside.

It seems the primary target for all pro-government forces at the moment is the Al-Rashiddeen District of Aleppo City; this area has long been a thorn in the side of the Syrian Arab Army because of its large Jihadist presence.
