On April 23, a new wave of Russian airstrikes hit the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, which is controlled by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

The airstrikes targeted militants’ positions in the outskirts of the town of Kabani in the northern Lattakia countryside. The mountainous town is an infamous stronghold of HTS and several other terrorist groups, like the Turkistan Islamic Party and Ajnad al-Kavkaz.

This was the fifth wave of Russian airstrikes to target positions of HTS and its allies in Greater Idlib since the beginning of April.

The previous wave of airstrikes, which took place on April 22 morning, targeted militants’ positions in the outskirts of the town of Ruweiha in the southern Idlib countryside and near the town of al-Enkawi in the northwestern countryside of Hama.

Late on the same day, Russian warplanes carried out a series of “mock airstrikes” with flash bombs over the towns of al-Bara and Maraat Misrin in the southern Idlib countryside, al-Fou’ah in the eastern countryside of Idlib, al-Dana and Atimah in the northern Idlib countryside and Darat Izza in the western countryside of Aleppo. The mock airstrikes were apparently a warning to HTS and its allies.

The recent Russian airstrikes were likely a response to violations of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey more than two years ago.

The ceasefire in Greater Idlib is still holding up. However, HTS and other terrorist groups, including ISIS, have been taking advantage of the ceasefire to further expand their influence in the region. Turkey, who maintains a large force in Greater Idlib, is yet to take action against these groups.

Nuclear war is now a certainty. I really can’t see any scenario where there won’t be a nuclear war. Stock up with food and prepare .

Underneath the Alps and other mountains like in NZ, there are luxurious vast underground bunkers. Possibly the hadron collider is actually making underground bunkers for the demon loving master minds of this war, Underground farms, deep mineral water springs, sewerage faciilities, daylight electric light bulbs, generators for electricity, undergound heating, wine cellars, beer barrels, gyms, swimming pools jacuzzis, hairdressers, manicurists, sex slaves, fresh blood, goats, chickens cattle. So when the nukes come they think we will still be obeying their orders..or dead.

Can’t really protect them from 50 megaton bomb, you see. It is the same in Konjic, Bosnia where are those underground bunkers under the mountains. In Sarajevo, there are few, at Dariva, in Naselje Sunca, vast chambers and corridors, tunnels trucks can drive tru. Just check that out.
