Warplanes and attack helicopters of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out on November 21 more than 40 airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in southern Idlib.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the airstrikes targeted the towns of Hizareen, al-Zurzur, Kafr Nabl, Rakaya Sijneh, Bsakla, Maarzita, Kafar Sijnah and Oureinbe.
Anas al-M’araui, an opposition activist, shared a short video showing one of the Russian airstrikes, which targeted the outskirt of Kafr Nabl.
The targeted towns are known to be a stronghold of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), al-Qaeda’s former branch in Syria, and its Turkish-backed allies.
The airstrikes were likely meant as a response to the repeated violations by HTS and its allies. Earlier today, 37 civilians were killed or injured in attacks by these terrorist groups on Aleppo’s city center.
