BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force unleashed a massive assault over the key town of Kafr Naboudeh in northwestern Hama last night, a military source in the Hama Governorate told Al-Masdar News this morning.

Led by their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force repeatedly struck the jihadist defenses inside of Kafr Naboudeh, scoring several direct hits on Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions.

According to the military source in Hama, the Russian Air Force was attempting to weaken the jihadist resolve at the northern district of Kafr Naboudeh. This area now has a large presence of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fighters, which is making it very difficult for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to retake Kafr Naboudeh.

The Russian Air Force is still carrying out airstrikes over northwestern Syria at this time; however, the majority of these strikes are now concentrated on the western countryside of the Idlib Governorate. In particular, the Russian Air Force is hitting the jihadist positions in the Jisr Al-Shughour District.

Russian air force response – a day late. They had to have seen this coming but waited until 40 Syrian soldiers had died and HTS rook the town.

An excellent point – the main enemy is Turkey which has re-organized, regrouped, retrained, armed, supplied and directed the combined jihadi gangs with great success – the enemy has been underestimated, again and again !

It’s not Turkey, it’s the Ikhwan. AKP is just a part of the “Brotherhood”, just like the Bani-Thani, Hamas, etc etc etc… There are sub groups who are fighting as militias, other doing terrorism, other posing as charities, NGOs, building mosques, etc etc, meanwhile, they gather funds, gather intelligence, find new recruits, etc etc… The goal is to undermine countries, just like they did in Turkey or Egypt… The point is that they also lost areas : Egypt’s coup, in Tunisia, they thought they’d be re-elected, it failed, al-Bashir has just been overthrown, now let’s see what will happen… If… Read more »

I remember hearing about Orwell in the mid-1980s. We were in high school (14.15 years old). We were “revolutionaries” (rock, hard rock, punk rock, etc.) Good times. We were rebels and we wanted to change the world ?

The situation is very difficult and very dangerous in general. Nothing goes well. Syria has a great ancient history and will survive. It is like being a part of ancient Greece. The times are very difficult and hard because NWO is trying to continue. “You are allowed to fall but you have to get up” (there are enough trolls in the comments and try to confuse the other commentators …. maybe they get money to do this, who knows what role they play ???).

….While avoiding to hit the illegal, occupation Turkish military outpost which are covering the terrorists from Russian air strikes. The Russian so called bombardments are nothing more than exercises mimicking bombing raids just for the show of it. In actual fact they are killing no one for fear of a Turkish retaliatory strike.
