Russian Warplanes Pound Militant Targets in Idlib Province

While Syrian government forces and warplanes attack Western-backed militants in the area of Aleppo city, the Russian Aerospace Forces focus on militant targets and supply lines in the province of Idlib, mostly controlled by Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda) and linked groups.

Militant supply lines along the Aleppo-Hama highway attract special attention of Russian warplanes. It’s complicated to estimate the total number of air strikes delivered since Friday. However, local sources and pro-militant outlets report about 15-20 air strikes every day. Unofrunately, the Russian Defense Ministry does not provide information about delivered air strikes.

In turn, pro-militant media outlets report that alleged Russian warplanes continue to bomb schools and hospitals in the Idlib and Aleppo countryside. According to Step News Agency, Russian air strikes hit a school in the village of Has in Idlib province on November 20.

    even retarded maniacs can see that the planes in the vid are escorting an airliner and are not at all engaged in bombing anything, lest alone schools or hospitals.

    at first glance, it looks like theyre escorting a Tu22M3.
