Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) have carried out a second wave of airstrikes on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The airstrikes, which took place on September 9 noon, targeted positions in the western outskirt of the city of Idlib. The city is a stronghold of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham. The group occupies a large part of Greater Idlib.

Earlier in the morning, VKS warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the remaining militants’ positions in northern Lattakia.

The Russian airstrikes led to a state of panic among militants in Greater Idlib, who carried out series of attacks against Syrian government forces in the past few weeks.

Greater Idlib ceasefire, which was implemented on March 5, appears to be on the brink of complete collapse. Turkey, which maintains thousands of troops in the region, is still supporting a large part of the militants.

The recent Russian airstrikes may be a sign of a near ground operation in Greater Idlib by the Syrian Arab Army and its allies.
