Russian, Syrian Warplanes Struck Idlib City For First Time In Three Months

On June 18 and 19, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) stuck several militant targets in the outskirt of Idlib’s city center for the first time in three months.

Opposition activists said that the Russian and Syrian airstrikes targeted several positions around the city, including the district of al-Sina’a. Many workshops and small factories are reportedly located there.

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies are known for storing weapons inside civilian buildings in Idlib’s city center and around it. In late 2017, a truck carrying ammo for the group exploded near a football stadium in the heart of the city. More than a year later, an ammo depot located inside Idlib’s collage exploded.

Despite this, the Russian Aerospace Forces and the SyAAF usually avoid hitting targets inside Idlib’s city center as the area is heavily populated.

    This is a big question mark for all international leaderships and UNO that what US, NATO and Israel doing in Yemen, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya etc. Do they respect these countries sovereignty or these leaderships and UNO are US puppets?

    I just wonder whether or not Russia has stopped pleasing Turkey and its terrorists at Idlib. I am not sure because of such a stupid ceasefires, and SAA offensive on Idlib does not see clear at all.

      Russia needs to complete the shipment of the S-400 to turkey first. after this, RUS probably will raise the pressure…
