Helicopters of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) have carried out a new series of airstrikes on militants’ positions in the northern Lattakia countryside.
Oppositions activists said that dozens of airstrikes targeted the strategic town of Kabani and nearby positions in the morning of October 4.
The SyAAF resumed its operations in the region a day earlier, after halting them for 24 hours for unknown reasons.
The airstrikes are reportedly targeting fortifications, such as berms, tunnels and trenches, being built by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in northern Lattakia. Most of the fortifications are located around Kabani.
In the last few months, HTS and its allies launched many rockets and drones from Kabani at Russia’s Hmeimim airbase and civilian areas on the Syrian coast.
