DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3: 55 P.M.) – Up to 22 leaders from the al-Qaeda affiliate Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham have been killed as a Russian fighter jet targeted a building in Jisr al-Shughour in the western countryside of Idlib.
According to reports, a high-level meeting was being held in the targeted building when the Russian airstrike occurred.
The same reports added that the Russian military in Syria was capable of gathering precise intelligence information of the meeting which included dozens of the jihadi group’s commanders.
Russian, as well as Syrian, fighter jets continue to pummel the jihadi groups positions across Idlib after the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun last week.
