Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out on November 17 at least 29 airstrikes on the southern Idlib countryside.
The Russian airstrikes targeted the towns of Oureinbe, Fatterah, Saraqib, Maarzita, Kafr Nabl, Jbala, Kafar Sijnah, Khan Assubul, Milaja as well as the strategic region of Jabal al-Arbaaine.
According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), at least two militants were killed in the airstrikes. Many others were reportedly injured, some of them are in a critical condition.
A day earlier, three terrorists were killed when a series of Russian airstrikes hit their positions in Maarzita in southern Idlib.
Russian warplanes have been pounding terrorists’ positions in southern Idlib for several weeks now. These airstrikes could be a sign of a nearing ground operation by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the region.
