The Russian Air Force’s participation in the Syrian Arab Army’s new offensive inside the Al-Ghaab Plains has paid dividends for the latter, as they have successfully reentered Al-Bahsa , while also recapturing 4 out of 5 hills in Jubb Al-Ahmar; these aforementioned areas were captured by the Islamist rebels of “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) during their offensive in August.

On Thursday morning, the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Helicopter Gunships could be seen above the advancing Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) soldiers inside the Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate; this marked the first time that the Syrian Arab Army’s ground units and the Russian Air Force have coordinated an assault together against the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh.

Following the intense aerial assault from the Russian Air Force, the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces broke-through the frontlines of Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab (Al-Ghaab Hawks Brigade) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at Al-Bahra, resulting in the Syrian Armed Forces taking control of the southern sector of this imperative town.

In addition to their success at Al-Bahsa, the Syrian Armed Forces -in coordination with the Russian Air Force – recaptured 4 out of the 5 hills at the strategic hilltop of Jubb Al-Ahmar in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside after fierce clashes with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab.

The primary objective of this offensive appears to be the eventual recapture of Al-Sirmaniyah; this city is vitally located to the south of Jisr Al-Shughour in the Idlib Governorate.
