BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – The Russian Armed Forces unleashed a massive attack on the jihadist stronghold of Jisr Al-Shughour today, launching both airstrikes and cruise missiles towards this city in western Idlib.

According to reports from western Syria, the Russian Navy fired several missiles towards the jihadist positions in Jisr Al-Shughour, causing a number of explosions that could be heard throughout this district near the Turkish border.

The reports said the Russian military carried out this attack on Jisr Al-Shughour in response to last night’s attack on the Hmeimim (var. Khmeimim) Airbase and the jihadist offensive in northern Latakia.

At the same time, the Syrian Arab Army is also firing artillery and missiles towards the jihadist defenses in this area, as their troops attempt to obstruct the militant supply routes throughout western Idlib.

Excelente, pero también debe empezar la ofensiva en otras zonas a fin de que los terroristas trasladen sus hombres a lugares distintos.
