DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:50 P.M.) – A non-stop, fierce aerial campaign has hit rebel stronghold of Lataminah in northern Hama as part of a wider offensive aimed at restoring the jihadi-held areas in central and northern Syria.

At least 5 Syrian attack helicopters and 4 Russian fighter jets launched a wide-scale airstrikes against the town which is considered the heartland of the FSA-affiliated Jaish Izza rebel group.

Russian jets used 2000-pound bunker buster bombs to destroy the underground hideouts dug by jihadi groups in the rocks.
