BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has stepped up their aerial assault in the Idlib Governorate this afternoon, following a series of powerful airstrikes earlier today.

Using their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force has launched another another two dozen airstrikes over the southwestern countryside of the Idlib Governorate, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

The Russian jets primarily concentrated these strikes on the Jisr Al-Shughour District, which is controlled by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

With these latest airstrikes, the Russian Air Force has now launched over 70 airstrikes above the Idlib Governorate today.

This latest campaign by the Syrian and Russian air forces is the largest aerial bombardment of any part of Syria this year.

While the Russian Air Force continues to bombardment the jihadist rebels, the Turkish military has responded by increasing the size of their forces around the Idlib and Hama governorates.

It appears that a major showdown might take place between the Syrian Arab Army and Turkish military, if the latter does not withdraw from certain observation posts near the jihadist rebels.

Turkish (Russia friend (?)) must go back home and stop supporting and protecting terrorists.

Los ataques deben continuar sin dar descanso a los terroristas.
