BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out a powerful attack over the Idlib Governorate on Thursday following a jihadist artillery and missile barrage that targeted the Christian town of Mhardeh.

According to a report from the Hama Governorate, the Russian Air Force launched airstrikes from as far south as Khan Sheikhoun and as far north as Idlib city.

The report said the Russian Air Force carried out the attack in retaliation for the jihadist strikes on Mhardeh and yesterday’s assault on Aleppo city that killed two children.

Since the start of July, the Russian Air Force has heavily targeted the Idlib and Hama governorates, often carrying out dozens of airstrikes in a day.

Los ataques no sólo debe ser en represalia, la iniciativa debe ser del ejercito Sirio y la fuerza aérea.

Sincerest prayers for the innocent, deceased children and their families. These children are out of harm’s way , and back home with their Father God, resting peacefully in his light and glory, waiting till they reunite with their earthly parents and family. Scripture says violent deaths are not remembered when we leave the earthly realm for home. I mourn with you. ??️?
