Russian Warplanes Hammer Greater Idlib For Second Day In Row (Videos, Photos)

On October 24, a new wave of Russia airstrikes hit the northwestern Syrian region of Greater where several terrorists groups are present.

The airstrikes targeted the outskirts of the town of Jisr al-Shughur in the western countryside of Idlib. The town is an infamous stronghold of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Turkistan Islamic Party and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib.

A few hours prior to the airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) artillery hammered militants’ positions in the southern Idlib countryside. The artillery strikes targeted the towns of Kansafra, Sufuhon, Kafar Aweed and al-Fatterah.

At around the same time, the militants shot down one of their own improvised drones over the town of Dadikh in the southern countryside of Idlib by mistake.

A day earlier, Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the southern countryside of Idlib. The SAA also struck a target in the governorate’s eastern countryside with a precision-guided missile.

The recent Russian and Syria strikes on Greater Idlib were most likely a response to the repeated violations of the ceasefire in the region, which was brokered by Russian and Turkey on 5 March 2020.

The SAA is reportedly preparing to carry out a military operation in Greater Idlib to reinforce the ceasefire and reopen the Lattakia-Aleppo highway, known as the M4. Turkey, who maintains a large and heavily-armed force in the region, have already warned that it will respond to any move by the army.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Condolences to the fallen wahabimossad and CIAisis operators.
May they rest in pieces…

Igor V Lysy

Well It looks like turkey doesn’t have those 70 nukes any more does it, and the Greeks have finally put a lid on turkeys millitary campaign on moving systems along with tons of refugees back and fourth into Serbia and that general area where the corrupt forces hiding under the name CIA pretending to be official. The movement of children weapons and destabilization is over. So what will turkey do now? Of course the sea and Syria. To try to get fuel and influence in the region. But it’s to late now isn’t it. The supply of illigal activities has ceased.

They are now in the worst nightmare scenario where it’s just them and Russia. That Bluewater navy is just a buffer not a doctrine at this point the visigroth will see to the western flank of turkey is busy…


hts as experimental cannon fodder, excellent. Well deserved.
