Syrian and Russian warplanes carried out 75 airstrikes on Greater Idlib in the last 24 hours, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on August 8.
According to the UK-based monitoring group, the airstrikes targeted several towns and villages in the northern Hama countryside and the southern countryside of Idlib. No civilians were reportedly killed or injured.
Opposition activists released many videos showing the airstrikes, especially on the key towns of Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah in northern Hama.
In the last two days, the SAA captured the towns of al-Arbaeen, al-Zaka and the village of Sakhar in northern Hama. The army is now preparing to storm al-Lataminah and Kafr Zita, or to advance towards Hobait.
Army units were able to carry out this rapid advance thanks to the support of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces.
