Earlier today, a massive convoy of armored vehicles belonging to the Islamist rebels were reported to be heading towards northern Aleppo from the town of Ariha in the Idlib Governorate.

However, most of the armored vehicles from this Islamist rebel convoy would never reach their destination, let alone the Aleppo Governorate’s border, thanks in large part to the Syrian Arab Air Force’s (SAAF) fighter jets that were on the prowl in the Idlib Governorate.

According to several field reports from the Syrian Air Force, the fighter jets reportedly destroyed over 20 enemy vehicles that were caught traveling in broad daylight along the Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4 Highway).

The final destination of this large convoy was not necessarily clear because the Syrian Opposition activists did not provide details about which front in northern Aleppo that these fighters would be reinforcing.

Currently, the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah are under attack along every front in northern Aleppo, leaving them in desperate need of reinforcements to fend off the pro-government forces and the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG).

The coming days will be critical for the Islamist rebels; if they are unable to maintain their ground in northern Aleppo, they will likely lose several important sites.

@MarkSleboda1 The same sort of rebels [Islamist, anti-West, Head-Choppers] that #NATO would attack if ISIL wasn’t around.

@MarkSleboda1 & all that @BBC could come up with was that someone bombed an MSF hospital. No doubt hoping it was Russia.
