Yesterday witnessed an unprecidented Russian bombardment on rebel-held towns across Idlib province and the western countryside of Aleppo.

Long-term, Moscow hopes to systematically weaken the Jaysh al-Fateh coalition through incendiary bombs, pinpoint airstrikes and naval cruise missiles. In turn, this will help bolster coming Syrian Arab Army offensives into the Jaysh al-Fateh heartland of Idlib.

Our partners from www.SouthFront.org have more on the story:

If sold a cheaper than a Super-Tucano, it may even achieve high numbers in foreign sales, especially if sold 5M$… Read more »
