Russian Warplanes Hammer Militant Positions In Greater Idlib With Guided Bombs (Video, Photos)

On September 15, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out more than 12 airstrikes on militants’ positions in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The Russian airstrikes hit positions located near the towns of Zurzur, al-Hammammah and Darkush in the western countryside of Idlib. The three towns are situated a few kilometers away from the border with Turkey.

According to Syrian opposition activists, the airstrikes were conducted by three Su-34 and Su-24M warplanes. At least one of the Russian warplanes, a Su-24M, was armed with two KAB-500S-E satellite-guided bombs.

The airstrikes were likely a response to recent violations of the ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey last year. Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies launch attacks from the region on a daily basis.

A day earlier, sources close to HTS claimed that several Russian service members were killed in an attack in southern Greater Idlib. These claims remain unverified.

According to several recent reports, the Syrian Arab Army and its allies may soon resume ground operations in Greater Idlib. Such a move could deter HTS and its allies. However, it will also provoke Turkey who maintain a large force in the region.

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

The Objective

Turkey is going to secure Idlib regardless of Russia’s frustrated bombings. Russia cannot change the status quo without crossing redlines. It remains to be seen how far Putin takes his PR campaign. We should wait for the SAA ground offensive in Idlib. May Allah make the drones destroy All of Assad’s soldiers and militias, Ameen. Praying hard for the Turkish soldiers facing this mounting aggression and bullying of Sunni majority Syrians. May Allah protect you all and give you victory. May He punish the crusader invaders by your hands, Ameen. No arrogance. Fight and have faith in Allah. And you’ll surely defeat the Russians 100%.

Turkey mostly is with TFSA. These in Idlib are Wahhabis.

Turkey aint Israel Shlomo…


It’s a fact that Turkey managed to stand against Russia in Syria and took the initiative in the Armenia-Azerbaijani conflict in what used to be Moscow backyard. Russia has managed to retain just one former USSR republic in its area of influence, Belarus. Even Americans are now totally focused on China, they don’t bother any more about Russia. But it looks like that the commentators of this site don’t take notice of it, most of them are fanatical Putin supporters.

Russia can test and improve the accuracy of their guided bombs and the moderates prematurely achieve their life goal as martyr. Everybody wins! What’s not to like?

Lance Ripplinger

The intensity of the airstrikes must be a lead up to an operation by the SAA. If the SAA can establish a 10km corridor on either side of the M4 highway and seize it, that will be a huge step to the eventual capture of Idlib. That is just my humble opinion.
