The Russian Air Force carried out several airstrikes over the southern and western countrysides of Aleppo on Tuesday, targeting Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s movements along their primary supply routes to the provincial capital.

According to a military source in Latakia, the Russian Air Force struck the Jihadist militants at the villages of Al-Mansoura and Khan Al-‘Assal in west Aleppo and the hilltop town of Tal Al-‘Eiss in the south.

The source added that the Russian Air Force is still conducting airstrikes over the western and southern parts of the province, while the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies continue to target the Jihadist militants with artillery shells and rockets.

The Russian Air Force’s response on Tuesday is the 2nd time in 2 weeks that they have targeted the Jihadist forces in Aleppo – the 1st time they struck Jabhat Al-Nusra’s positions was earlier this month when they were storming Sheikh Maqsoud.
