New Wave Of Russian Airstrikes Hits Greater Idlib As Syrian Army Continues To Shell The Region (Video)

Early on October 7, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out four airstrikes on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The airstrikes targeted the outskirts of the town of Bsanqul in the southern countryside of Idlib. A network of defensive positions of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, and its allies is located in the area.

Later in the morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled the towns of Sufuhon, Fleifel, Mantef, al-Ruwaiha, al-Bara and Kansafra with artillery rounds and rockets. The towns are located in the mountainous area of the al-Zawiya in the southern countryside of Idlib.

The Russian and Syrian strikes were likely a response to the repeated violations of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib. HTS and its allies violate the ceasefire, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey last year, on a daily basis.

Currently, the SAA is making preparations for a possible ground operation in Greater Idlib. The operation will reportedly target the M4 highway, which links the port city of Lattakia with the city of Aleppo, Syria’s main industrial hub.

A new operation by the SAA and its allies will almost certainly lead to a military confrontation with the Turkish military that maintains more than 60 positions in the region. Ankara is still not willing to give up on the terrorist-infested region despite recent attacks on its troops there.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Condolences to the fallen wahabimossad and CIAisis operators. May they rest in pieces…


bye bye turkish guppu. May you live long in the east torkestan of xinjiang.


The turks are insane to challenge Syrian & allies resolve. As occupiers and aggressors they are fair game for all method of attack.

How long would a turkish outpost last against KAB-1500s? Ignorant leadership.


The “tell” will be when Turkey shoots down VKS assets over Idlib.

At same time Azerbaijani and Turkish forces with aide of Israeli intelligence and drones will attack Armenian forces so that the land bridge through Nakhichevan is resolved.

Iran will thus be tied up with its Azeri mess. Russia will be forced to help Armenia.

When Turkey knocks out VKS over Idlib the balloon is up.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Keep dreaming Shlomo.

The Oracel

If Turkey and Azer are stupid enough to attack Armenia proper when it borders are guarinted by Russia and China it will be a gift to Russia, China and Iran. it will be a repreat of Georgia attacking Russia at the command of Israel.

Israel wiil make huge $$, all Turkish troops involved outside of Turkish territory will be destroyed, the Turk economy will collapse, the leadership of Azer will be exterminated, replaced by opposition figures approved by Russia China and Iran.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
