On September 4, more than 13 Russian airstrikes hit the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where several terrorist groups are present and active.

The Russian airstrikes targeted fortified posts, trenches and tunnels near the town of Kansafra, Ain La Rose, al-Bara and Urum al-Jawz in the al-Zawiya Mount in the southern countryside of Idlib. The mountainous region is held by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, and the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation.

Russian warplanes have been pounding militants’ positions in Greater Idlib nonstop for more than two weeks now. These airstrikes are meant to deter HTS and its allies who violated the ceasefire in the region on a daily basis.

A day earlier, HTS carried out 35 shelling attacks from Greater Idlib, according to the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria. At least three service members of the Syrian Arab Army were wounded.

The recent Russian airstrikes on Greater Idlib inflicted some serious losses on HTS and its allies. Nevertheless, the militants are not backing down. The ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey last year, is barely holding up.
