BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – A suspected ambush carried out by the Russian Special Forces against a group of militants was reported this morning, a source from the army told Al-Masdar.
According to the military source, the Russian Special Forces snuck behind enemy lines in southern Idlib before attacking a group of militants from Suqour Al-Sham.
The source said the Russian Special Forces carried out the ambush in the militant-held town of ‘Ejaz.
He would add that a total of eleven members of Suqour Al-Sham were killed during the ambush last night.
It is rare for the Russian Special Forces to carry out these attacks; however, they have conducted covert operations like this when they have information about militant activities.
