BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force has unleashed a major assault across the Idlib Governorate tonight, targeting several areas under the control of the jihadist rebels.

Led by six Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force conducted strikes on several points inside the Idlib Governorate in the last 20 minutes.

According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Russian Air Force primarily targeted Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions in the Jisr Al-Shughour District and nearby Al-Ghaab Plain.

Among the sites hit by the Russian Air Force were Jisr Al-Shughour, Farika, Tal ‘Aas, Sheikh Mustafa, Basida, and the Sugar Factory.

The source said the Russian Air Force is now sending more jets to the Idlib Governorate in order to strike more targets belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

He would add that these Russian airstrikes are being conducted in response to the heavy attack that was launched by the jihadist rebels on the towns of Al-Suqaylabiyeh, Mhardeh, and Salhab.

[email protected] off the Russian Bear and see what you get. Turkey had a chance to rein in her jihadi proxies in Idlib but instead chose to establish “observation posts” all the while allowing their Turkmen allies to go rogue and remove local Syrians from their homes, land and stealing their possessions. Then, as seen recently, the Turks show their true colours regarding terrorism by doing joint patrols with the al-Qaeda spinoff, HTS.

You know, all this way of doing is written black on white in their “religious” book, especially Surat#9, although there’s stuff in #8 (and others and hadiths, but these r the main ones)

1.) The way of doing is using ceasefire to their profit, and they test you on a regular basis. If you don’t respond disproportionally on each provocation…

2.) you’re seen as weakened and they’ll attack with all out. They are totally fnaticised and will NEVER give up until they win or are finished off. Do not expect peace…

3.) At best, you’ll get a ceasefire. They may stay calm for a few years if really kicked hard, but make yourself no illusion : their goal is world domination…

4.) The whole totalitarian fascistic political program is in their Coran. Do not expect better from the Shia islamists like Hezb/IRGC etc…

5.) since they’re master at ‘taqiyya’ (deception). In fact, they’re just more hypocrite. The day you trust them, you’re doomed.

the article did not mention recent Tartus shelling which wold be another stronger reason. I would expect more lies to be struck.
