BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:15 A.M.) –  The Syrian and Russian air forces wasted little time retaliating to the jihadist offensive in northern Latakia on Tuesday, as their fleets unleashed hell over the positions of the Turkestan Islamic Party and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the Syrian Air Force began the attack on the jihadist positions, using both their assault choppers and fighter jets to hammer the militants.

The Russian Air Force then joined the attack on the jihadists, hitting several sites between the Latakia and Idlib governorates.

These aerial attacks by the Russian and Syrian air forces reportedly resulted in heavy damage to the jihadist defenses, especially in the mountaintop town of Kabani in northeastern Latakia.

As a result of these airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was able to quickly sweep through the areas seized by the jihadist rebels and reestablish security in this part of the Turkmen of the Mountains.
