BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out a special operation on Friday that targeted one of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s underground bases in the northern Hama countryside.

A Russian jet traveling from the Hmaymim Airbase in southwest Latakia would conduct this airstrike on Friday, using a bunker buster bomb to destroy the jihadist base.

The Russian Ministry of Defense released footage of this bombing today, showing the moment their jet struck the jihadist installation in the northern Hama countryside.

Since the U.S.’ attack on the Shay’rat Airbase in east Homs, the Russian Air Force has stepped up their air campaign in Syria, targeting jihadist rebel factions operating on several fronts around the country.

I wonder how many Western Advisers were there 🙂 All the terrorists seen in the area display good basic field craft skills with their 5m spacing’s and this is in a rear area. Its yet another small sign of professional training for Terrorists by the West.

@ Daeshbag,

I was making a Generalisation, not a detailed appraisal of the semblance of discipline and order employed by the terrorists in the video that are rarely observed.

I make allowances for your use and understanding of English as your first language is French and understanding the nuances of any language is very difficult for any non native speaker.
