On September 12 morning, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces targeted militants’’ positions along Syria’s border with Turkey.
The London-based Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that Russian warplanes carried out two airstrikes on the area of Sad al-Shughr in the northwestern part of Greater Idlib. The result of the airstrikes remains unknown.
A day earlier, Russian warpalnes carried out a series of airstrikes on several targets near the towns of Kafar Takharim and Darkushin in northern Idlib.
Greater Idlib is witnessing a ceasefire now. However, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies are violating it on a regular basis by attempting to attack Syrian and Russian forces.
If these violations continue, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) may soon find itself forced to resume its ground operations in Greater Idlib.
