Minutes ago in the northern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a flurry of airstrikes that targeted the Gulf-backed jihadist rebels at the Handarat Camp and Al-Kindi Hospital (now a rebel hideout).

According to a source at the Hama Military Airport, the Syrian Air Force conducted at least 20 airstrikes so far, while their infantry units attempt to advance around the Handarat Camp’s outskirts.

Recently, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) have intensified their military operations inside the Handarat Camp in order to alleviate the pressure applied by the jihadist rebels at the Sheikh Maqsoud District.

Is that an archive picture? Or maybe the SyAAF Mig-29s have been overhowled?
Syria had a nice Air-Force in 2011 but most of planes have been over-used and there were problems to replace parts : they performed around 200 raids a day for a long time so, recently, we saw only the older ones who were used in great numbers, so they can take parts from those which are in storage…

a number of planes have been shot doen but the reason why sorties are fewer now is that rats have received MANPADS in some areas.

They are not “jihadists,” they are “sectarian Takfiris” or “sectarian Takfiri terrorists.” – the label does not fit them…
