Russian Warplanes Target Terrorists Occupying Al-Fu’ah & Kafriya In Eastern Idlib (Video)

Support SouthFront

In Afternoon of March 22, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on radical militants positions in the towns of al-Fu’ah and Kafriya in the eastern Idlib countryside. The airstrikes covered several other towns in the southern part of the governorate.

This was the first time ever Russian warplanes target positions inside al-Fu’ah and Kafriya. The two towns were a stronghold for government supporters up until July of 2018, when all civilians and fighters there were forced to leave after more than three years of siege.

Following the evacuation of the locals, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and several al-Qaeda-affiliated groups took over the two towns. Soon after that thousands of terrorists, mainly foreigners, began to loot and occupy the abandoned houses of the locals.

HTS, backed by many opposition activists, made an attempt to change the names of the two Shiite towns in order to impose a final change. However, they failed.

The Russian Aerospace Forces usually conduct such aerial operations against Idlib militants in response to repeated violations of the demilitarized zone agreement, or to prevent them from launching new attacks.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

When the Idlib offensive finally commences, these two town will probably be two of the earliest town recaptured. If the offensive is launched from Hader and pushes west as some of us expect it will, it’s only about a 30 km advance to these two towns, which also means the airbase close by will also be recaptured, then it’s only another 30 km push west from there to the Turkish border. If the SAA do successfully split Idlib in half, they will probably try to retake the southern areas first, and I think they’ll easily do it in just a matter of weeks, and then the northern areas in just a few more months. But that’s only if Erdogan allows it to happen and I still think he will, but only after he gets what he wants from Putin, and so far he hasn’t got it, but when he does get it, I think he’ll actually help Putin smash HTS and some of the other rebel groups out of Syria, since he’s shown he has no aversion to stabbing old friends in the back when it suits him.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
