BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has launched their biggest attack of the month in Syria this week, targeting several areas across the Latakia, Idlib, and Hama governorates.

According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Russian Air Force has been launching hourly strikes over the northwestern region of Syria, inflicting heavy damage on the jihadist defenses.

Among the targets for the Russian Air Force are the Idlib Governorate cities of Jisr Al-Shughour and Khan Sheikhoun.

These aforementioned cities have a large presence of jihadist rebels from factions like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

The Arabic-language version of the Sputnik News Agency reported this morning that the Russian Air Force had destroyed at least a half dozen militant bases and ammunition depots in the Idlib Governorate.

These airstrikes by the Russian Air Force come at the same time that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to storm the militant-held areas in the Al-Ghaab Plain area of both Hama and Idlib.

Long Live Syria

The Russian Military gave 2-3 months break and ensured that the dumb Jihadis goaded on by even more stupid Turk sponsors came out in the open an positioned themselves to take on SAA on the ground and now they are completely exposed. Why should SAA waste its soldiers in the open? Fighting in Hama & Idlib is no longer a street war it is wast open plains and mountains both the sides can see each other and their positions. ATGMs have clear line of sight & range so it is next to impossible to advance the dismounted soldiers and Tanks… Read more »

Espero que esta ves la ofensiva sea acompañado por la fuerza aérea y no como las veces anteriores complaciendo a Erdogan para detener el avance del ejercito Sirio, mientras tanto los terroristas aprovechan para aprovisionarse de mas municiones, armas y hombre por parte del gobierno Turco.
