BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force and their Russian partners conducted a large number of airstrikes over the southern region of the Idlib Governorate on Wednesday.
According to a military report from northwestern Syria, the Syrian and Russian air forces specifically targeted the jihadist-held towns of Khan Sheikhoun, Kafr Sijnah, Abidin, Tramala, and Sheikh Mustafa.
The report added that the Syrian Air Force is still heavily targeting southern Idlib as their ground troops prepare to launch their next big assault on this region.
Meanwhile, in response to these airstrikes, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham have begun targeting the town of Mhardeh in northwestern Hama.
The jihadists have reportedly fired several rockets and artillery shells towards Mhardeh and its large power plant.
The hostilities in northwestern Syria have gotten progressively worse over the last week, as the failed talks between Russia and Turkey have only paved the way for more violence in this region of Syria.
