BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force launched several strikes over northwestern Syria on Wednesday, as their warplanes heavily targeted sites belonging to the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP) and Hurras Al-Deen group.
According to a field source in the Hama Governorate, the Russian Air Force began the day by heavily targeting the Turkestan Islamic Party’s positions in the northeastern countryside of Latakia.
The Russian Air Force primarily concentrated their strikes on the town of Kabani, which is controlled by the foreign jihadist group.
Following the strikes over Latakia, the Russian Air Force expanded their attack to the southern countryside of Idlib.
The source said the Russian Air Force heavily targeted the Jabal Al-Zawiya region, which is located in the southern and central countrysides of the Idlib Governorate.
The strikes on the Jabal Al-Zawiya region struck the jihadist positions near the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) front-lines, resulting in heavy damage to the militant defenses.
