BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – For the third day in a row, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) has launched several airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate.

Led by their L-39 Albatros, the Syrian Air Force targeted several areas controlled by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in and around the town of Khan Sheikhoun.

A source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar News this afternoon that these airstrikes were conducted in response to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s missile strike in eastern Idlib last night.

The HTS attack resulted in the death of seven Syrian soldiers and the hospitalization of more than 20 others.

Useless strikes since what it is needed is a total offensive in this area, even if Russia does not want it.

You won’t lead “heavy airstrikes” with a trainer-jet like L-39ZA Albatros : 1,290 kg payload 😉

NB : SyAAF Su-24M3 carry 8 tons payload, near as much as a B-29 Superfortress (and with 9,100kg, B-29 was limited to low altitude delivery).
Su-24 does heavy strikes.
