Syrian and Russian warplanes and attack helicopters carried out on November 14 a series of airstrikes on terrorists positions in the southern Idlib countryside.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the airstrikes targeted the towns of Jbala, Misherfah, al-Zarzor, Sufuhon, Umm Elkhalayel, Hizareen, Kafr Nabl, Kafar Sijnah, Bsakla and Oureinbe.
The results of the airstrikes, which likely targeted al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies, have not been revealed yet.
Early in the morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a ground operation in southern Idlib, capturing the town of Luwaybidah and the nearby Khaznah hill.
The intense Syrian and Russian airstrikes on southern Idlib suggest that the army is planning to advance further in the region in the near future.
