The target of the recent Russian airstrikes on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib was a training camp of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), RusVesna.SU revealed on April 7.

Su-24 fighter bombers of the Russian Aerospace Forces targeted the camp, which was located a kilometer to the south of the town of Bsanqul in western Idlib, on April 7 morning.

According to RusVesna, the airstrikes wiped out the camp and destroyed several armored vehicles. The Russian outlet didn’t report any human losses.

On April 6, a similar wave of airstrikes targeted the outskirts of Bsanqul. A unit of HTS which was escorting a Turkish military convoy was targeted. A pickup was reportedly destroyed and several militants were killed or injured.

The recent Russian airstrikes on Greater Idlib were a response to the repeated violations of the ceasefire in the region, where the situation remains unstable.

In the last few days, HTS and its allies shelled a number of settlements in the government-held parts of southern Idlib and northwestern Hama. No human losses were reported.

Turkey, which is a key guarantor of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib, is doing nothing to confront HTS and its allies. In fact, Ankara’s proxies in the region are a part of the al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operations Room that is led by HTS.
