Russian forces stormed rebel positions in Sakhl al-Gab, between Latakia and Idlib in northern Syria.
The assault involved Russian forces in up to battalion strength. The rebel-held heights were subjected to heavy artillery bombardment using howitzers and rocket artillery. Russian forces also had air cover in the form of Su-25M attack aircraft.
The ground operation involved Russian Naval Infantry supported by T-90 MBTs and BTR-80 [BTR-82?] APCs.
Right now the captured positions are held by Russian and Syrian forces.
Syria’s pro-government journalists are confirming that Russian ground troops conducted operations near Aleppo.
