Russian Warplanes Rain Hell On Militant Positions In Northwestern, Southern Idlib

In the early hours of March 21, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on radical militants’ positions in the northern Syrian governorate of Idlib.

According to the pro-opposition news outlet, Enab Baladi, the airstrikes covered the city of Jisr al-Shughur and the town of Frikeh in northwestern Idlib and the towns of Sheikh Mustafa, Kafr Rumah, Maar Tahroma, al-Hamidiah, Hish, Bsida, Faqie, Qasabiyeh and Tal’as in the southern part of the governorate.

The aerial attack was likely a response to new violations of the Russian-Turkish demilitarized zone agreement. Two days ago, radical militants targeted a civilian bus near the city of Aleppo killing two young children. Later, militants shelled several residential areas in northern Hama.

Such aerial attacks usually target fortifications, headquarters, communication centers and ammo depots of terrorist groups like Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP).

The Russian Aerospace Forces will likely continue its aerial operations against Idlib militants, as they are apparently unwilling to respect any agreement.

    I would wish this to be an initial step for an offensive on Idlib are, but i am afraid that this is just a dream since Russia will continue pleasing Turkey, due their strong economical and commercial agreements.

          Yes I know, me too. But, today is a different day, so we can both subscribe to our theory now (until the morning).

          Day by day mate, day by day.

            Nothing here happens in isolation. They’ve been waiting for March 21st, after which date the satanists of US are inclined to start their attacks. The Russians are planning to start theirs just before their intel tells them US is about to act (perhaps Venezuela). It is a great way to muck up those plans to start their own action just then. It is a massive distraction, and a message to the satanists in control of US that their choosing of astrological dates for their operations have no strength anymore. Personally, I love it.

    Well done Russia. When all options exhausted so then this is the only option left with the Syrian nation to defend their civilians citizens from Zionist evils.

    It looks like the white helmets are back, because they are crying casualties – https://syria.liveuamap.com/

    As a side issue, I wonder how that Turkish fighter (listed in today’s list) was welcomed ?.
