BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:25 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force unleashed a heavy attack in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate this morning.
Led by their Mi-28 and Ka-52 choppers, the Russian Air Force repeatedly struck the jihadist stronghold of Kabani, inflicting heavy damage on the defenses of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.
Russian attack followed the Syrian Arab Army’s heavy barrage of artillery, which primarily targeted the jihadist defenses at the southern axis of Kabani.
Speaking to the Sputnik News Agency on Wednesday, a Syrian military source said that the army is currently working to weaken the jihadist defenses around Kabani before they launch a large-scale attack on the town.
He would add that the Syrian Army will capture the hilltops surrounding Kabani before making a push to seize the town.
