On September 19, a new wave of Russian airstrikes targeted militants’ positions in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Russian warplanes carried out a total of 17 airstrikes on the region, which is governed by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

  • Two airstrikes targeted the town of al-Fatterah in the southern countryside of Idlib.
  • Five airstrikes targeted the town of Kansafra and its outskirts in the southern countryside of Idlib.
  • Three airstrikes targeted the town of Bassams in the southern countryside of Idlib.
  • Three airstrikes targeted the town of Ablin in the southern countryside of Idlib.
  • Four airstrikes targeted the al-Akrad Mount in the northern countryside of Lattakia.

The Russian airstrikes coincided with a heavy rocket attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on militants’ positions in the outskirts of Jisr al-Shughur town in the western countryside of Idlib.

Recently, several reports said that the SAA and its allies are preparing to launch a new ground operation in Greater Idlib to deter HTS and its allies as well as to reopen and secure the Lattakia-Aleppo highway, known as the M4.

Al the targets hit by the Russian Aerospace Forces and the SAA on September 19 were located to the south of the M4 highway. This may be a sign of a near ground operation.

Excellent news. hts foreign scum will be eliminated to the last paid degenerate.

Chris Gr

All factions in Syria are foreign backed.


Why are they still quoting the Syrian observation of something whatever?
It’s just one guy in a basement in London who is anti Assad.


My guess is to keep a spotlight on this fool from london who continues to impersonate a legitimate news source.

We always have PressTV, Sana News, Almanar, etc to rely on. Russian sources like RT, Tass News, Sputnik News etc. All info can be verified without the need of one clown working for interests in the west.


how about russia and the resistance stopping to act passively towards terrorists in idlib and wipe them out all together and liberate this province from the occupying turkish terrorist scum because besides these strikes i only see passiveness towards this issue by russia while in fact the issue is as such today that not just turkish illegal occupation could be lifted but it could be done in a manner which would greatly humiliate nato turkey in a manner it would never again seek to occupy its south again it would learn to have some increased respect from syria and iraq
