BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – The Russian military has stepped up their operations against the jihadist rebels in northwestern Syria, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.

According to the source, the Russian Air Force has carried out dozens of airstrikes over the Hama and Idlib governorates this week after a relatively quiet end to the month of June.

The source said the recent spike in Russian military activity comes just days after their collapsed ceasefire talks with the Turkish Armed Forces in regards to the situation in northwestern Syria.

On Friday, the Russian Air Force hammered the southwestern region of the Idlib Governorate, hitting several targets belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza.

The Russian Air Force reportedly concentrated on the jihadist supply line from the town of Khan Sheikhoun to the Al-Ghaab Plain.

At the same time, the jihadist rebels have responded to the Russian airstrikes by launching several artillery shells and missiles towards the Syrian military’s positions in northwestern Hama.

This is good news. As we have seen, the safety zone at Idleb was a big mistake. The safety zone protects the jihadists and the trucks coming from turkey-filled weapons.Russia has fallen into a trap. Now you have to start from the beginning.All these weeks were a waste of time … Peace talks and deals and a cease-fire was a waste of time.Turkey helped the jihadists and they were organized again. They entered Syria from the border with Turkey and Russia bombarded mountains because they were hiding in caves. This was a waste of time.Hit them when they enter Syria.No… Read more »
