BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces continued their air campaign over Syria on Thursday, as their warplanes heavily targeted several sites belonging to multiple jihadist groups inside the Arab Republic.
The Russian Aerospace Forces began their strikes on Thursday by targeting the positions of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP) along the Idlib-Latakia axis.
According to a field report from the Latakia Governorate on Thursday, the Russian airstrikes targeted the area between the two jihadist strongholds of Kabani (Latakia) and Al-Sirmaniyeh (Idlib).
Not long after their attacks on northwestern Syria, the Russian Aerospace Forces turned their attention to the central part of the country, where they once again attacked the positions of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist group.
The Russian Aerospace Forces launched a number of strikes over the Islamic State’s positions in the Al-Resafa (Raqqa) countryside, along with attacks in the eastern part of the Hama Governorate.
Since the start of the new year, the Russian Aerospace Forces have conducted airstrikes in central Syria on a daily basis, which has limited the Islamic State’s offensive capabilities in the region between Hama, Al-Raqqa, and Homs.
