The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces are conducting an intense bombing campaign on militants’ positions in the strategic town of Khan Shaykhun in southern Idlib.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said on July 20 that dozens of Syrian and Russian airstrikes targeted the town and several areas in its vicinity over the last 48 hours.

Syrian opposition sources said that the town is also being shelled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). Heavy rockets were reportedly used in the shelling.

Khan Shaykhun is located on the M5 highway, which links the Syrian capital, Damascus, with Aleppo. The town is one of Hya’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) main strongholds in Greater Idlib.

The intense strikes on Khan Shaykhun indicate that the SAA may be planning to launch a military operation to capture the town. Such a move would deal a major blow to HTS and other terrorist groups in Greater Idlib.
