Russian air force

BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force launched a massive assault across western Idlib last night, targeting several areas controlled by the jihadist rebels near the Turkish border.

Led by their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force began their assault shortly after 9:00 P.M. (local time). The Russian Air Force would then unleash a powerful assault over the Jisr Al-Shughour District and Jabal Al-Zawiya region.

The Russian Air Force would launch over 25 airstrikes across western Idlib last night, result in the destruction of several installations belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their jihadist allies.

Multiple Russian airstrikes would later be reported in southern Idlib, western Aleppo, and northern Hama. These airstrikes were reported after a multitude of attacks by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham on the goverment areas.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has launched several retaliatory attacks since the Russian bombardment; they would purposely target the civil infrastructure of Aleppo city and many residential homes overnight.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) kicked off their long-awaited offensive in northwestern Hama on Monday morning, scoring several important gains against the militant forces near the towns of Kafr Naboudeh and Qal’at Al-Madiq.

While they lost two tanks during the battle, the Syrian Army was still able to capture the strategic hilltop of Tal Uthman, which ultimately cutoff the militant supply line from the towns of Kafr Naboudeh and Qal’at Al-Madiq.

The jihadist rebels attempted to retake these areas later in the day; however, they were repelled after suffering heavy losses at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army.
