On November 15th, another wave of airstrikes hit militants’ positions in Syria’s Greater Idlib region.
Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) targeted militant’s facilities near the village of Majalia in the Syrian Idlib governorate. According to local reports, at least three strikes were recorded in the area. Later, at least one airstrike was carried out near the village of Deir Sunbol.
Meanwhile, SAA artillery shelled positions of Turkish-backed forces in Kafr Nouran village.
Attacks on militant facilities are carried out in response to regular ceasefire violations of the ceasefire brokered last year by Russia and Turkey . Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, maintains a large presence in the area with many covert positions, headquarters and ammunition depots.
Another target of the VKS attacks are ISIS hideouts in Central Syria.
On November 15, Russian warplanes carried out successive raids in the desert area of Jabal al-Bishri in the east of Raqqa province.
This comes after ISIS fighters carried out several attacks in the pro-government forces. On November 13, at least 13 fighters of a tribal pro-government formation known as “Usud al-Sharqiyah” [the Lions of the East] were killed in an ambush set by ISIS terrorists near the town of al-Masrab in the northwestern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). Another ISIS attack claimed lives of 4 SAA soldiers in Daraa province.
