A confidential military source has informed Al-Masdar News that a total of 46 jet sorties and 26 helicopter sorties were conducted in the past 24 hours, averaging an airstrike every 20 minutes.
The air raids were carried out across five governorates; namely Aleppo, Idlib, Homs, Hama and Deir Ezzor. The airstrikes were roughly split 50/50 between rebel-held areas and ISIS territory.
A convoy of armored vehicles were spotted and targeted by Syrian warplanes along the Saraqib-Aleppo road in Idlib province. The devastation was not immediately clear.
However, the source confirmed to Al-Masdar News that 4 pickup trucks fitted with heavy machineguns were set alight by airstrikes in southern Aleppo, near the military colleges at the Sheikh Saeed district.
According to Syrian intelligence, all four pickup trucks belonged to Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, an Islamist group formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra.
Furthermore, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) targeted a number of ISIS controlled villages in eastern Aleppo, specifically at Deir Hafer, Hamimah and Rasm al-Kama. This region has otherwise been relatively calm since the SAA liberated Kuweiris Airbase in late 2015.
