BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – On the night of Monday to Tuesday, Russian warplanes conducted precision airstrikes in southern Idlib province against two of Syria’s most powerful Islamist rebel groups.

According to military-affiliated sources, Russian jets bombed weapons and ammunition storage sites as well as military camps and communication bases belonging to Al-Qaeda affiliate group Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (better known by its former name, Al-Nusra Front) and Jabhat Tahrir Souriya (comprising fighters and commanders linked to the Muslim Brotherhood).

Russian airstrikes were observed at the towns of Maar Zita, Maar Harmeh and Taarii; here, warplanes orbited the target area for a time and delivered munitions upon clear identification of militant assets.

It is worth noting that, on the ground, both rebel groups targeted by Russian aircraft, Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham and Jabhat Tahrir Souriya, are currently in the midst of a war with one another.

Sounds very good. Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Qatar supporters of HTS & Mohamed Bin Salman in Saudi supporters of JTS must be feeling the pain to see their investment going up in flame & smoke.

Keep it up Russia send them to h**l.

Liberate Idlib same way as East Ghouta & Douma.

No boarding of bus this time for these head choppers.
