BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 P.M.) – A number of Russian aircraft were seen over the Idlib Governorate skies on Wednesday after a military patrol was disrupted by a group of militants earlier in the day.

Russian military aircraft, including their reconnaissance drones, conducted flights over the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway), in areas where the militant forces have repeatedly gathered to block the Russian police from completing their scheduled patrols.

The Russian military did not conduct any airstrikes, but since Monday, they have increased their presence over the skies over the Idlib Governorate.

A source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar News on Tuesday that the Russian Armed Forces conducted some reconnaissance flights this week to monitor the militant forces that were gathering in different parts of the governorate.

He would add that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is awaiting Russia’s green light to resume their field operations inside the Idlib Governorate.

I wonder is it worth it? Cost of the Jihadi’s life NIL infact expandable asset for Turki and per month he gets ration & pocket money of some 500$+ which is peanuts. Cost of these Russian Fighter Air craft and long range bombers, cost of fuel, cost of flying hours, cost of the bombs & ammunition dropped, risk to the pilots, whole lot of other ATC crew to help the bomber pilots while the birds are up in the air add their costs, military strategists who work to select targets. No one calculates these over all costs. End of the… Read more »

@Long…, Your solution is even more expensive. Cheapest is SAA does it on the ground. Why do I have the shoddy AlJazeera video footage as advertisement? Including White Helmets and heroic Turk Forces helping democratic man-eaters.

I knew this was going to happen when the idiot terrorists held up Russian patrols.
Don’t these fools realize that the Russians are waiting for such actions. 😛
