Late on February 3, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on the northwestern region of Greater Idlib which is infested with terrorist groups.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the airstrikes targeted militants’ positions in the outskirts of the town of Armanaz in northwestern Idlib. No human losses have been reported, so far.

A day earlier, Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes on positions of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) near the town of Haranabush in the same region.

The airstrikes were likely a response to recent violations of the Greater Idlib ceasefire, which was brokered by Russian and Turkey on March 5 of last year.

Greater Idlib militants, led by HTS, violate the ceasefire on a regular basis. The militants carried out dozens of attacks against Syrian government forces over the last month.

The new wave of Russian airstrikes on Greater Idlib can also be a seen as a response to the MSM ongoing attempts to whitewash HTS and its terrorist leader Abu Mohamad al-Julani. Moscow stressed on several occasions that terrorists in Greater Idlib should be dealt with.
