BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) launched another round of heavy airstrikes over southern Idlib last night, targeting several areas controlled by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
According to a military report from nearby Hama, the Syrian Air Force targeted Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions near the key town of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib.
The Syrian Air Force’s strikes near Khan Sheikhoun were carried out shortly after they targeted Jaysh Al-Izza’s bases and trenches at the towns of Al-Latamnah and Kafr Zita.
These airstrikes by the Syrian Air Force have recently increased in response to the expansion of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in southern Idlib.
Furthermore, with the rebel groups refusing to leave the demilitarized zone, the Syrian Arab Army has been pushing to launch a new offensive to expel them from this area.
