BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has been relentlessly bombing Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions in the northern countryside of Hama this week, targeting several towns near the government controlled towns of Suqaylabiyah and Mhardeh.

Russian jets flying out of the Hmaymim Airbase in Jableh, Latakia reportedly carried out several airstrikes over the towns of Zakat, Abu Dali, Al-Lataminah, and Kafr Zita.

Video footage of the Russian airstrikes over northern Hama was released by pro-opposition media on Tuesday; it specifically shows a Russian jet bombing the town of Zakat.

The Russian airstrikes were conducted in retaliation for the jihadist attacks on the government-held towns of Suqaylabiyah and Mhardeh over the weekend.
