More Than 100 Militants Killed & Injured In Syrian Airstrikes On Taftanaz Airbase In Eastern Idlib (Videos)

Donate

At least 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, Syrian pro-government sources revealed.

Two Su-24MK warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) carried out the airstrikes, which targeted buildings and hangars inside the militant-held airbase. Nine vehicles which were parked inside the airbase were also destroyed.

Opposition activists confirmed that the airbase was hit with at least four airstrikes on the noon of May 23 and released several videos of the aerial attack.

A coalition of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Qaeda captured Taftanaz airbase in April 2012. Back then, dozens of Syrian service members, including pilots, were killed. Some of them were executed by the FSA.

The airstrikes on the airbase were just a part of the ongoing Syrian-Russian aerial attack on militants’ positions in Idlib and its surroundings.

            Thanks to Russia. sadly Syria still divided by foreign forces . Still he has to go. Time for democratic election new blood need it in Syria and all foreign force should piss offff . live Syrian people to heal there wounds good luck to Syrian population

          • 1691

            By all means, Russia helped but so did Iran, Hezbollah and the Syrians. Assad could have saved his back but he stayed right there with his people. My respect and admiration ! And regardless of what I say or you see it is up to Syrians to decide whether he should go or not.

          • Mustafa Mehmet

            Yes you right up to Syrian to decide they are future. difficult one but we have to wait and see

      • Ace

        That is not Assad’s problem.

  • d’Artagnan

    These are Russian upgraded SU-24MK2 and can deliver precise munitions and have good active counter-measures. The SyAAF is doing a bang up job. It is time for the Russians to unleash hell on the headchoppers too.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    I often wonder who is the one who counts the dead? Especially ones that come from bombings.

    • Edvin R

      Ahmed Taarot also known as Ahmed the Crystalball is official counter and info source.

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      😂😂

    • @Inc2Get

      They are counted by the amount of people that has for instance entered a building and an estimate is done. For instance, Russia hit this airbase with knowledge of intel, sources or satellite images that shows how many vehicles stationed outside, how many people have entered so far and the amount of activity in the airbase. If the activity is very high ie many people are coming and going, that would mean an it’s fully active.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        you still can not know who die and how many but you can estimate an approximate number. In any case in war people die so at the end of the day what matters is who win not how many die in each firefight.

  • Edvin R

    Did they dropped a nuke? Heard it was 12500 killed.

    • ColinNZ

      No. Video footage confirms a powerful and precise conventional airstrike targeting a large gathering of al qaeda senior military figures & commanders together with a number of foreign (mostly Turkish) military intelligence personnel. https://www.facebook.com/syrianmilitary/videos/444608773020801/

      • Edvin R

        Where is that video footage? Thats a some old video of something exploding in the middle of no-where.According to the Syrian Armys reports they have killed 48 million “terorists” by now.Note that the video is posted on the 23rd when they got wiped in Kafr Nabudah ;)

  • klove and light

    lol…..yeah yeah great…bombing..SAA now is going to free Idlib from terrorists-sarcasm out

    ps. thats just public Relations for the Dummies still believing that SAA has 1% of Chance to free their Homeland from various occupation Forces!!!!!!!
    smartass dummies

    • You can call me Al

      All you are is a dumb, fucked up troll, spewing anti-Assad and anti-Russian propaganda out, hoping that at least a couple of fools will start to believe you. For me, you are so obvious it is untrue.

      I am now blocking you and I would strongly recommend that others do.

  • gustavo

    Well, bombing is ok, but the evidences of 125 terrorists killed are not here, but if the “oppositions” is saying this, yeah we believe it.

  • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

    given that the incompetent rookie airforce of Syria has NO precision, GPS,laser guided bombs in its arsenal… these claims are outrageous and should be taken with a grain of salt. NO PROOF FOR CLAIMS

  • ColinNZ

    Reliable reports elsewhere suggest at least 160 were killed, and amongst those included many senior al qaeda commanders and a number of foreign military intelligence personnel including many Turks (MIT & military advisors) helping the jihadists prepare against the SAA offensive. A welcome bit of karma in my view.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Great but not enough, the FSA/SFL/NFL all need some attention too, they’re killing more SAA soldiers than HTS is, drop some bombs on them too, and don’t worry about the fact they’re fully supported by Erdogan, Putin’s new mate.
