Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out on November 15 several airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in the towns of Kafar Roma and al-Bara.
Opposition activists released videos showing the intense Russian airstrikes on the two towns, which are controlled by al-Qaeda-affiliated Haya’t Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).
Earlier, the National Front for Liberation (NFL), a Turkish-backed group allied with HTS, claimed that its militants had repelled an attack by Syrian government forces on the village of Tell Dam, located south of Kafar Roma and al-Bara. These claims were dismissed by pro-government sources.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a limited ground operation in southeastern Idlib on November 14. The town of Luwaybidah and the nearby Khaznah Hill were both captured.
Army units may resume their advance in southeastern Idlib in the upcoming few hours with support from the Russian Aerospace Forces.
