Russian Warplanes Conducted Intensive Armed Patrols Over Syria’s Greater Idlib

On March 13, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces conducted intensive armed patrols over the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where a number of terrorist groups are present and active.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, fully-armed warplanes flew over the entire region for hours starting from the early morning.

The intensive Russian armed patrols were surprising as the situation in Greater Idlib have been very much calm. No serious violations of the ceasefire in the region, which was brokered by Russia and Tukey more than a year ago, were reported in the last few days.

It is possible that the armed patrols were a warning to al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib.

One recent report revealed that the terrorist group recently moved rockets armed with toxic gases to the southern countryside of Idlib. Another report talked about ongoing preparations by the group to send terrorists to fight with government forces in Ukraine, where the Russian military is currently conducting a special military operation.

Meanwhile, Turkey, who maintains a large force in Greater Idlib, continues to turn the blind eye to the terrorist group control over the region.

The Russian military will not likely hesitate to target HTS or any other terrorist group in Greater Idlib if they attempt to stage a chemical provocation, or send terrorists to Ukraine.

Sorry, but it was brokered more than two years ago.

USNato is trying to bleed Russia with thousands cuts by bogging it down in multiple wars.

How does $1.7T GDP Russia support such costly war over 7yrs (USM spent $7Trillions in swift winning Iraq & Afgh wars), while feeding 20mils Syrians?

Iran itself is suffering USNato heavy sanction unable to export even oil, while still need to support Syria war, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Palestine, Lebanon,…resistance to USNato-Israel-Saudi evil axis.

The only possible backer is China, who needs to protect its energy security as its 80% supplies comes from ME.

Russia is truly capable of fighting two fronts war simultaneously. The world needs Russia, Iran and China to break USNato-Israel-Japan-Australia-India evil axis.
