BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – For the second time in a week, a suspected Russian Special Forces operation was carried out behind jihadist lines in the Idlib Governorate.

According to a source from the Syrian military, the Russian Special Forces snuck behind enemy lines in the Al-Ghaab Plain, where they later ambushed the Al-Qaeda-linked Hurras Al-Deen group.

The source said the specific location of the Russian attack was Khirbat Al-Naqous, which is close to the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) front-lines in the Al-Ghaab Plain region of the Idlib Governorate.

He would add that the special operation resulted in the death of at least five foreign Hurras Al-Deen members.

Prior to this attack, a similar operation was carried out against Suqour Al-Sham in the southern region of the Idlib.

The Russian Special Forces, nor the Russian Ministry of Defense, comment on these operations and previously, it was thought that the Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Division was behind these attacks.
