BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force is currently swarming the Idlib and Aleppo governorates, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar this evening.
According to the military source, the Russian jets are mostly flying over the positions of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.
He added that airstrikes are expected shortly, especially after the recent string of attacks that were carried out by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham on Aleppo city.
The jihadist rebels have recently wreaked havoc on Aleppo city, killing 19 soldiers and more than 15 civilians.
Earlier on Monday, the Russian Air Force launched powerful raids over the western countryside of Aleppo; however, the airstrikes would not last long as the Sukhoi jets ultimately returned to the Hmeimim Airbase in southwest Latakia.
