On January 2, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out at least ten airstrikes on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where several terrorist groups are active.

The airstrikes targeted the western outskirts of Idlib city, the town of Sheikh Yousef in the western Idlib countryside and the outskirts of the town of Arihah in the southern countryside of the governorate.

The targets were most likely positions of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib.

Russian warplanes have been bombing Greater Idlib for the last few days. The recent airstrikes on the region were apparently a response to ceasefire violations by HTS and its allies. On January 2 only, the terrorist group and its allies, including Turkish backed groups, shelled government-held areas in the northern Lattakia countryside, the northwestern countryside of Hama and the southern Idlib countryside.

The situation in Greater Idlib may escalate even further in the upcoming few days. HTS and its allies are clearly not willing to respect the ceasefire, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey more than a year ago.

Meanwhile, the Turkish military who maintains more than a 60 positions across Greater Idlib is doing nothing to secure or stabilize the region.

Russia in Syria?

Zionists in Jerusalem?

Fix the problem at the source (US-backed Zionists and Russian- backed Assadists).

Leave the Palestinians and Syrians alone.
