The text was updated on June 6

Syrian and Russian forces carried out more than 1,000 strikes on the governorate of Idlib and its surroundings on June 5, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

The London-based monitoring group said that the Syrian and Russian airstrikes targeted at least 19 towns and villages in greater Idlib.

Step News, a pro-opposition outlet based in Idlib, released a new video showing a Su-24M2 and a Su-34 of the Russian Aerospace Forces, as well as a L-39 of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) flying over greater Idlib.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed its ground operation in northwestern Hama two days ago and captured four towns north and west of the town of Kafr Nabudah.

These intense airstrikes indicate that the SAA and its allies are planning to continue their ground operations in the upcoming few days.

    Hey South Front, you haven’t any video with 1,000 airstrykes in 24 hours.

    • FlorianGeyer

      A few Ukranian’s do I think as they play Call of Duty.

      • jorge

        Half of the Ukranians have migrate, your few are of what half?

        • FlorianGeyer

          They are still Ukranians, wherever they are.

  • paul ( original )

    1000 in twenty four hours seems quite a lot. I think the Russians only have a few tens of aircraft. So it’s hard to see how so many strikes could be possible.

    • HardHawk

      well between the Russian planes and the Syrian planes, due to short distance they could do that if they put their minds to it, but I also doubt they have reach 1000 strikes in one day.

      • paul ( original )

        The thing is that target would be chosen carefully and damage assessed .I don’t think they just go in blasting away. There is the fatigue of the pilots and ground crew to consider. I don’t doubt that the bombing was intense but I think the number is just a propaganda number which appears to come from pro -terrorist sources.

        • Xio

          Exactly. SOHR lies and terrorist propaganda.

        • HardHawk

          Agree but for months the turkish backed terrorists have been fortifying positions and making them permanent bases for them as well receiving a lot of hardware from turkey and I am sure both the Russians and Syrians, been watching and marking targets.

          Now it is real time I dont think the Syrians need to reassess the targets beside the ones who are on the run, but then again where are they going to go beside fall back to the second or third line of their defensive positions according to the situation?

          As I said I agree the number of sorties are sound exaggerated, unless the full force of the Syrian air force including their helicopters are in this bombings.

  • HardHawk

    very good pulverize them and take no prisoners.

  • Toronto Tonto

    Did they get all the hospitals too .

    • JustPassingThrough

      lmao

    • Xio

      Don’t worry retard, your mental hospital is safe.

        Never heard of irony ?

    • David Parker

      Hospital = Daesch headquarters and lounge.

    • Attrition47

      Yes and they drowned three puppies, the bastards.

      Canada is just a USA vassal, and USA is just an Israel vassal. So, your opinions are just repeating voice of CNN, ABC, or FOX.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Canada is not a country but still a British colony, with the old hag “queen” as the head of state, but its daily affairs are managed by the US masters who control all aspects of Canada, from airports to ports. Canada has no relevance in the world anyway, just a frozen version of Australia.

        • Concrete Mike

          Depends where you are sir.

          Im pretty sure Irving and McCain do what the fuck they want regardless of usa or govmt.

    • Sinbad2

      Nah, bombing hospitals and schools is a Jewish thing.

      • Bob

        Saudi ‘coalition’ military aviation strategy, against Yemen, regularly employs ‘double tap’ bombing runs – the secondary target being the responding Yemeni emergency services.

        • Sinbad2

          Exactly, Israel trains and advises the Saudis.
          Birds of a feather stick together.

    • dinnedup

      Saw White Helmets in some of the May 2019 vids

    • Bob

      Ahh, that old chestnut – barrel bombing the last hospital in Aleppo Idlib, the last school in Aleppo Idlib, the last puppy shelter in Aleppo Idlib, the last women’s refuge centre in Aleppo Idlib…actually that last one was a trick, they don’t have them in fundamentalist Sunni occupied territory!

  • Xio

    SOHR is full of shit, terrorist propaganda basically.

  • Xoli Xoli

    One governorate with 1000 strike means no more terrorists. But I think it has been exaggerated maybe fake news.We know all that BBC and human rights are lyers clear fake news.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Their were supposed to say Londen base terrorists observatory group.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      MI-6 funds these propaganda losers.

      • Xoli Xoli

        Of course you are right there is a element of failure ,rumors and fake new and obviously Israel the USA instigator.

    Pro rats source is trying to make up the number out of his arse. During the most intense phases of RuAF compaign in Syria they were doing 110-130 sorties in 24 hours (unthinkable figure for NATO for same amount of jets. Many remember the state of shock NATO commentators have been during 2015). If one counts every attack on target as strike than it is possible to get up to 4 strikes per sortie/jet. But that’s not possible in current reality – rats are hiding and running. In reality there could be 300-400 strikes (RuAF and Syrian AF combined) at the very best but even that is highly unlikely. I know that we want Idlib liberated as soon as possible but let’s be real.
    I would think that sohr is working on prepearing pretext for next round of “Butcher Assad and evil Putin the Terrible are butchering “innocent moderate freedom fighters” (head chopping rats in reality but that doesn’t count in MSM world). Let’s see how it unfolds.

    • Redadmiral

      Must be a typo. If RuAF & SAAF carried out that amount of strikes in a day POTUS et al would be screaming THE MURDER of INNOCENTS across every “Newspaper” all-over the world. One zero too many methinks.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        That is correct, I believe 100 airstrikes over the past 2 weeks is a more plausible figure. Even that in the limited confines of Idlib would have done some serious damage to the headchoppers.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      This is totally insane propaganda. Russia has barely 18 SU-24 and SU-25 ground attack Frogfoot in Syria. The Syrian AF ground attack capability is 12 upgraded SU-24Mk2 and 10 Iranian upgraded SU-22 Fitters with another smattering of MIG 21/23 and L-39 armed trainers. Even if their sortie turnaround time was a fantastical 10 seconds (even in the best of circumstances it takes a minimum of 1-2 hours to refuel and rearm an aircraft) this amazing feat is simply not possible. Perhaps, the Russians, Iranians and SyAAF have flown around 100 sorties since the last 2 weeks of air operations in Idlib with a possible ordinance tonnage of around 200 tons of HE and anti-personnel configuration. Even that amount would have taken out a lot of terrorist headchoppers and their depleted armor as photos and videos have shown. No wonder the bitches are crying and exaggerating!

  • Concrete Mike

    Could it be hes counting artillery strikes as airstrikes?

    That would easily be feasible.

    Keep pounding the rats until they beg for mercy, then bomb their non agreement capable asses again !

    • Sinbad2

      Could it be just BS?

      • Concrete Mike

        Highly likely ;)

        The reason i said that is : it could be a translation error.

        Regardless, pounds the goddamn rats , dont stop until the say 1 million!

  • Wolfgang Wolf

    no idea who came up with such numbers… maybe counted planes 10 fold… who knows…

  • gustavo

    When Russia decides to do something, it does it well, fast, and with high accuracy. I hope these attack means that Russia has stopped to please Turkey (NATO member) and is leading the offensive at Idlib.

  • verner

    much more of the same and when that is done and dusted, it’s time for the sdf in north east (and incidentally the quickly disintegrating states of A) and once those i’s are dotted and those t’s crossed, time for the final eviction of the squatters. can’t wait for the day so that the world can have a judenfrei palestina to celebrate.

  • Sinbad2

    How many planes does Russia have in Syria?
    A dozen maybe?
    So Russian planes can do more than 80 sorties a day, one every 20 minutes, that’s very impressive, of course the British could be lying, but they would never do that?

    • jorge

      The guy is british?

      • Sinbad2

        002.5

        • jorge

          per cent?

  • Peter Moy

    1,000 airstrikes in the last 24 hours? I don’t think so SouthFront. A more accurate count would be to count the number of “sorties” (i.e. one mission by one aircraft). For example, a flight of four Su-24 attack aircraft go on a mission and pound the enemy: that is four sorties. If the same four aircraft fly three missions in one day – that is 12 sorties. That calculation is more accurate in assessing the intensity of an air campaign. Just a suggestion.

  • Syrian Observatory for Human Rights ?

    Why would you quote this source? It’s as fraudulent as the White Helmets.

    Material from this man, who styles himself as an organization and who works from a bed-sit in Britain, has long been used by the mainline press for disinformation on the region.

    L-39 Albatross is bit of a toy compared to the Fencer and Flanker – but it is the great 20th century east bloc and non aligned bloc jet trainer – with nearly 3000 unit sales! Private western companies well know this – hence why the US ‘Patriots Jet Team’ uses L-39’s as do the French civilian ‘Breitling Jet Team’.
