BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – For the fourth day in a row, the Russian Air Force has unleashed a plethora of airstrikes over the northwestern region of Syria.
According to a military source in nearby Hama, the Russian Air Force heavily targeted the jihadist-held town of Tramla in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.
The Russian Air Force would also target a number of sites belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham along the Hama-Idlib axis, the source would add.
These airstrikes by the Russian Air Force come just hours after the jihadist rebels launched a hit-and-run attack against the Syrian Arab ARmy (SAA) troops in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate.
As a result of this attack on the Al-Athar Checkpoint near the town of Qal’at Al-Madiq, more than ten Syrian Arab Army soldiers were killed and several more wounded.
The Russian Air Force has launched more airstrikes in April than all of the previous months of this year combined.
The reason for this exponential increase in airstrikes is due to the large expansion of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in several areas across northwestern Syria.
