Two headquarters of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the al-Arba’in mount in southern Idlib were destroyed on May 24 in a series of airstrikes by the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF).
The Muraselon news outlet reported that a Syrian Su-24MK2 warplane targeted the two headquarters with at least four heavy “FAB” general purpose bombs completely destroying them.
According to the pro-government outlet, dozens of HTS fighters and Uzbeks terrorists were killed as a result of the airstrikes.
A day earlier, 125 militants of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies were killed or injured in a series of Syrian airstrikes on Taftanaz airbase in the eastern part of Idlib. Russian warplanes also wiped out an artillery position of Jaysh al-Izza, killing three militants including a senior commander.
The intensity of the ongoing aerial campaign indicates that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) may be preparing to resume its ground operation in northern Hama.
