BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out a strategic bombing of a militant base last week that resulted in the death of several members of the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF).

According to a Syrian military source, the Russian Air Force received the coordinates of an underground base belonging to the NLF in the Idlib Governorate town of Madaya.

With these coordinates from local spies and activists, the Russian Air Force destroyed the militant base in Madaya, killing and wounding over 20 fighters from the National Liberation Front.

The Syrian military source added that the attack sent a message to Turkey after another round of talks failed to produce a ceasefire or agreement on the situation in northwestern Syria.

Since this attack, the Russian Air Force has carried out an estimated 100 airstrikes over the Idlib and Hama governorates, causing significant damage to the enemy defenses.

There is no other option but to wipe out all the terrorists in Syria. Russia needs to increase its limited airpower in Syria and flatten Idlib and the major US terrorist havens in Eastern Euphrates valley. Russia, Iran, Syria and the noble axis of resistance needs to get on the same page and launch a major ground offensive to liberate Idlib and secure the Turkish terrorist conduit which is keeping the suffering of the Syrian people going.
