At least twelve militants were killed and fifteen others were injured in a Russian airstrike on a military position in southern Idlib on July 26.
Pro-government activists said that the airstrike targeted a key headquarters of Turkish-backed Jaysh al-Ahrar in the town of Tahtaya.
Jaysh al-Ahrar acknowledged that five of its fighters were killed in the airstrike and identified them as Abu Hamza Kassibah, Abu al-Hassan Sheikh Idress, Abu Basir Taoum, Abu Ottoman Tahtaya and Abu Nadir Seikh Idress.
Majed Alomari, an opposition activist, released a video showing injured militants screaming and asking for help while being trapped under the rubble of the destroyed headquarters.
Jaysh al-Ahrara is a member of the so called National Front (NFL) coalition, which was formed in 2018 with support from Turkey.
The Russian Aerospace Forces stepped up their airstrikes on Greater Idlib recently. In last few days, Russian airstrikes wiped out a headquarters of Malhama Tactical, a group of Jihadi mercenaries, and hit a senior radical scholar.
