BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Russian airstrikes over northwestern Syria have devastated the jihadist offensive capabilities, leaving them without the ability to respond effectively to these strikes, a source from the army told Al-Masdar News on Thursday.

According to the source, the Russian Air Force’s constant strikes on the southern and western countrysides of Idlib have resulted in the destruction of several jihadist installations, including many command and communication centers.

Furthermore, the source said the Russian strikes have forced many of the jihadist commanders from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party to hide in bases built inside of caves to avoid being killed by the Russian Air Force in Idlib and Latakia.

Since the second week of October, the Russian Air Force has conducted a wide-scale aerial campaign of northwestern Syria that has primarily targeted the whereabouts of the jihadist rebels.

These strikes have left several jihadist killed and wounded, while also paving the way for a future Syrian Arab Army (SAA) offensive.
