Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out on October 18 a series of airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in the southern Idlib countryside.
According to opposition activists, the Russian airstrikes targeted the towns of Rakaya Sijneh, Sheikh Mustafa and al-Naqeer.
Earlier, helicopters of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted several airstrikes on terrorists’ fortifications in the town of Kabani and its vicinity in the northern Lattakia countryside.
Both southern Idlib and northern Lattakia are a part of the Greater Idlib region, which is controlled by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other terrorist groups.
Pro-government activists are claiming that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is now preparing to launch a ground operation in Greater Idlib. However, these claims are yet to be confirmed by any official source.
