BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:15 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has joined their Syrian partners in an attempt to stop the ongoing Turkish-backed offensive in eastern Idlib this evening.

According to the latest field report from the Idlib Governorate, Russian and Syrian warplanes unleashed a flurry of strikes over eastern Idlib, mostly targeting the Turkish-backed militants and their jihadist allies in and around the towns of Afis and Nayrab.

The report said Russian warplanes have mostly concentrated their strikes on the jihadist rebels that have gathered near Saraqib, as they prepare to launch another push seize this strategic city along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5).

Prior to the entry of the Russian Air Force into this battle, the Syrian military’s aircraft came under heavy attack by the Turkish-backed militants, as the latter utilized their anti-aircraft missiles in an attempt to down the warplanes.

25th special force doesn’t air force help . Russia and Syrian air force should provide support to SAA in saraqib with full attack. They should even attack Turkish attlery supporting Terriost. Russia should be serious to attack turkey force helping terriost. to teach lesson to Erdogon.

And what good news would that be? That Turkey has delivered anti-aircraft missiles to their jihadist friends? That the M5, so bitterly fought over, has been cut? Or that the Turkish army is helping their allies to retake Saraqeb? None of that looks much like good news.

Lamentablemente la ayuda aérea llega muy tarde, los terroristas lograron cortar la carretera M-5 en norte de la ciudad de Saraqib, ahora lo están rodeando la ciudad.
Amarga cuando el gobierno Ruso deja actuar libremente a los mercenarios y al ejercito Turco para asesinar al ejercito Sirio.
