BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) has launched a powerful assault in southwest Idlib, today, targeting the areas controlled by the jihadist rebels.
According to a military communique from nearby Latakia, the Syrian Air Force has launched well over 60 airstrikes this afternoon, hitting a number of jihadist bases and trenches inside the Jisr Al-Shughour District.
In addition to the Syrian Air Force’s attack, their allies from the Tiger Forces have carried out their own assault that is concentrated on the Al-Ghaab Plain.
The Tiger Forces are reportedly using attack helicopters to target the bases of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, Jabhat Tahrir Souriya, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and the Turkestan Islamic Party.
This large-scale air assault by the SyAAF comes on the eve of the Syrian Arab Army’s upcoming offensive in northern Hama and southwest Idlib.
