Aleppo, Syria (3:30 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force has launched a relentless series of airstrikes over southern Aleppo tonight, targeting several areas that are under the control of the jihadist rebels.

A military source told Al-Masdar News on Thursday night that the Russian Air Force specifically targeted the Aleppo Artillery Academy, Al-Ramouseh District,  Hikmah School, and Khan Touman village.

The source added that loud explosions could be heard all over southern Aleppo tonight, including the sound of artillery shells and gunfire near the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.

On Thursday, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah launched a surprise attack at the Qarassi-Huwayz axis, resulting in a number of temporary gains for the pro-government forces before Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched their counter-attack.

Hooray for the Russians. They are pounding military targets while the good old USA coalition has started attacks on Syria’s al-Bab and targeted the city’s hospital and other vital infrastructures of the city, including the water and power facilities. 44 civilians were killed and wounded in the attack.

Why does the US do this? Back in 2015, I think it was, the US bombed and destroyed Aleppo’s power plants. Methinks ulterior motives are at work here. Actually it is not ‘methinks’ but ‘meknows’.
