BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:25 A.M.) – The Russian and Syrian air forces have unleashed a massive assault along the Hama-Idlib axis this evening, targeting many areas under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza.

According to a source in northern Hama, the Syrian and Russian air force targeted the region of the Hama-Idlib axis between the towns of Khan Sheikhoun (Idlib) and the large hilltop of Tal Al Malah (northwestern Hama).

The source added tonight’s attack were some of the heaviest strikes launched by the Syrian and Russian air forces this month.

On Thursday, the Russian Air Force had heavily targeted the jihadist stronghold of Khan Sheikhoun, hitting several sites belonging to both Jaysh Al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

At the same time as the Russian strikes on Khan Sheikhoun, the Syrian Air Force reportedly struck the Turkestan Islamic Party’s (TIP) positions in the Al-Ghaab Plain region of the Idlib Governorate.

Both the Russian and Syrian air forces have recently stepped up their strikes in response to the jihadist offensive at Al-Qasabiyah.

Meanwhile there was tremendous excitement with the 500 odd new Takfiri Salafi Jihadi recruits who were trained for only 2 weeks going around the play ground in circles shouting TAKE BEER OLA UBER TAKE BEER OLA UBER about the flash news of being mass mobilized. A leading TV channel supporting the Jihadis and a Amriki black bald man with a goat beard with a sharp shrapnel recently removed from his b**t and limping cursing Assad & Putin still being a big pain in his a**e interviewed them and the new recruits gushed with lot of happiness on being told that… Read more »

Espero que no pida alto al fuego Erdogan para salvar a sus mercenarios y Rusia seda a la manipulación. Los ataques aéreos deben ser continuos sin descanso.

Russia-Syria is just playing defense-respond type of war since any real full offensive on Idlib area is forbidden by Russia-Turkey agreement1,2,3,etc. It looks like this situation will last forever.

Oh, you know, as the interest to have only one parole, is to change it as often as possible, as we always say here, when you haven’t the right, you take the left, and the only thing forbidden here is getting caught 😉
