On September 20, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out 28 airstrikes on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The Russian airstrikes targeted the following areas:

  • The western outskirts of Idlib’s city center;
  • The town of Arab Said in the western countryside of Idlib;
  • The town of Batitiyah in the northern countryside of Idlib.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the targeted areas host several training camps and headquarters of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other jihadi groups.

Photos released by opposition activists revealed that the heavy airstrikes were carried out by Su-34s and Su-24s fighter bombers.

The airstrikes were likely a response to recent provocations by the HTS-led al-Faith al-Mubeen Operations Room. A day earlier, the operations room shelled Syrian Arab Army positions in the southern part of the al-Zawya Mount, the town of Hizareen and Ma`arat al-Nu`man city.

The ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, which was signed on March 5, appears to be on the brink of collapse. The last round of Russian-Turkish talks on the region saw a serious disagreement between the two sides.
