BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The Russian Navy fired several cruise missiles off the coast of Latakia on Thursday, targeting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions in the northern part of this mountainous province.
Russian cruise missiles reportedly struck several sites along the Latakia-Idlib axis on Thursday, causing significant damage to the jihadist defenses near the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham stronghold of Jisr Al-Shughour.
According to a local source in Latakia, the cruise missile strikes could be heard from as far away as the provincial capital and southern city of Jableh, where the Russian Air Force is stationed.
This powerful attack by the Russian Navy was in response to the rocket assault on the Hmaymim Military Airbase that was conducted by the jihadist rebels earlier this week.
