BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force, alongside their Syrian partners, unleashed a heavy attack across the Idlib Governorate this morning.

According to a military source in northwestern Syria, the Russian and Syrian air forces targeted many sites under the control of the jihadist rebels, including the Taftanaz Airport.

The Taftanaz Airport was seized by the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in late 2012.

Since its capture, the jihadist rebels have turned the Taftanaz Airport into one of their biggest bases inside northwestern Syria.

In addition to the airstrikes on the Taftanaz Airport, the Russian and Syrian air forces also heavily targeted the jihadist-held areas in Maar Tahroma and Sheikh Mustafa.

These airstrikes by the Russian and Syrian air forces come just hours after jihadist rebels targeted the Christian town of Al-Sqaylabiyeh with rockets and artillery shells.

El bombardeo no sólo debe ser para asustar, sino el objetivo debe ser directo en blanco eliminando terroristas.
